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.
Hey Wilmington! We'd like to know YOUR thoughts on the Draft Bike Network Map.
We are pleased to share this draft of the city bike route map that was created based on data analysis and your community input. Please share your thoughts about the map in the form on the link below. #WilmDE
"The downtown Wilmington nonprofit restores old and broken bikes and resells them for next to nothing. They put campers to work teaching them about bike safety and mechanics and take them out for spins on the bikes they help fix. At the camp’s conclusion, junior campers get to keep the bikes they make."
