ELGL and the Oregon Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA) are co-sponsoring a forum with Steve Hoyt-McBeth, Portland Bike Share program manager on April 16. Learn about the history and formation of bike sharing in the United States and how the program is being implemented in Portland. Called a “Very Portland Project” in the Portland Tribune, bike sharing has caught on in other cities and Steve is in charge of implementing the Portland version.
The forum will take place from noon to 1:00 pm and it will take place in downtown Portland. Steve spoke at the Portland State Center for Transportation Studies in 2012 on the Portland Bike Share and you can find his presentation here: Transportation Seminar Series – PDX Bike Share.
