With the help of a $2 million grant of federal funds through Metro, Portland's bike share system is on track to launch next year. How do similar systems in Washington, D.C., and New York work? And what do riders think?
Metro announces the recipients of $2.1 million in funds awarded through the Regional Travel Options grant program. These fourteen grants will support projects that increase opportunities for residents to use transit, carpool, ride their bicycles or walk.
Several representatives to a region-wide advisory committee said Wednesday that Metro's Climate Smart Communities program is about more than tailpipe emissions, saying it's about what citizens want in their communities.
