The first bike share program in the Pioneer Valley, and the first pedal-assist bike share program in New England – ValleyBike – is now available in South Hadley.
With stations at the town common and police department, residents and members of the public will be able to use ValleyBike for green transportation while engaging in heathy recreation.
ValleyBike allows members to pay for bikes by the trip, or join as a member for unlimited 45-minute rides by the day, month, or year.
Residents may sign up at www.ValleyBike.org, with special founding membership opportunities for a very limited time.
ValleyBike was initiated by Amherst, Northampton, and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, and then quickly joined by Springfield, Holyoke, and South Hadley. The planning effort was led by PVPC, which found the funding for planning. Leadership of the effort switched to Northampton for the implementation phase of the project.
ValleyBike is funded by MassDOT/Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant, Bewegen investments, community investments in station pads, user fees, and its sponsors.
