The Snowmass Village System will debut in mid-June with 15 shared WE-cycles and two, 15 dock stations. The Snowmass WE-cycle System is designed with the specific purpose of connecting the residential complex of Club Commons to Town Park’s RFTA bus stop.
The Club Commons-Town Park route is an ideal location to pilot bike share in Snowmass Village as the distance is less than one-half mile, relatively flat, and can be biked in a few minutes. The Club Commons residents have demonstrated a consistent and avid use for transit with the Town Park RFTA stop being one of the top 20 utilized stops in the valley. With 300 residents, approximately 40% of whom don’t own cars, we anticipate frequent ridership to and from the bus stop at varying times of the day due to the nature of seasonal employment.
The infrastructure for the Snowmass System is being funded by the Town of Snowmass Village and the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority. Annual operations will be funded by the Elected Officials Transportation Commission and private sponsors.
Let us know what you think and we’d love to hear your thoughts and any ideas for further expansion opportunities!
