Alta Planning + Design led a study, commissioned by the Utah Transit Authority, to explore viable governance models for a regional GREENBike system and seek consensus around a single recommended approach.
The success of Salt Lake City’s GREENBike bike share program has prompted interest in expanding the geographic footprint of the system beyond the Salt Lake City’s jurisdiction. Regional expansion of the system could include municipalities up and down the Wasatch Front from Ogden to Provo.
Potential strengths and weaknesses of the various local and regional agencies were analyzed based on their capability and willingness to incorporate bike share into their mission. This analysis, in conjunction with a review of bike share governance models from across the country, was combined to develop a preferred governance and organizational structure for the regional expansion of bike share. The project centered on a series of three in-depth and engaging stakeholder meetings and included a final summary report.
