Following on the commitment to becoming more bike friendly and making continued bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure investments, the Delaware Department of Transportation and the City of Wilmington secured Century Engineering and Toole Design Group to conduct an analysis of implementing a bike share program in Wilmington.
Bike share is a flexible and convenient transportation and mobility option that allows users to have access to bicycles throughout a community. Bike share systems offer specially-designed, durable, and versatile bicycles. A bike share system can be accessed through low-cost passes ranging from a few dollars for a single ride to regular passes that range from $5 to $15 per month. In the last few years, many cities around the U.S. have implemented bike share programs to provide effective transportation options for trips that are too long to walk but too short to drive. Additionally, bike share has become a great complement to other public transportation options including the bus, light and heavy rail as it provides point-to-point first and last mile connections to transit.
Subject: 2050 RTP Virtual Public Workshop
To: Randi Novakoff
Every four years, the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) updates its Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The RTP is a fundamental document for our region (New Castle County and Cecil County). Not only does it outline our region’s long-range transportation vision, it also lists all future projects that we anticipate in the next 20 to 30 years.
Now is your opportunity to influence the document that will guide transportation decision-making for the next twenty years!
To kick-off the plan, WILMAPCO is holding a Virtual Public Workshop on Friday, November 2 from 12-1pm. Login from anywhere to learn about and have your say in our transportation future!
