Friends of Pathways has signed an operating agreement with the Town of Jackson to help manage the operations of the Bike Share Program. To learn more or sign up, visit www.startbikejh.com.

Vision

START Bike is a program of START Bus. A full system will be launched in the spring of 2018 with 55 bikes and 17 stations.

In the Spring of 2016, Energy Conservation Works unanimously approved a motion to recommend that the Town of Jackson moved forward with the Bike Share program using SPET funding for 47% of the capital costs, securing matching funds from other sources.

History

Friends of Pathways has been working since 2010 to bring a permanent bike sharing system to downtown Jackson Hole. In 2011, Friends of Pathways and Alta Planning & Design developed a feasibility study for Bike Share. The study showed that the program would work, but bike lane improvements would greatly increase ridership. As a result, a Bicycle Improvement Plan was developed, adopted and implemented by the Town of Jackson.

After multiple improvements, such as bike lanes, formal bike routes and signs, Friends of Pathways conducted a three-week long demonstration of a bike share in 2016. 891 trips were taken for a total of 2,119 miles by 392 people.

Trail Conditions for 6-22-18

The front country trails are in prime summer shape right now!  Teton Pass has only a few lingering snow drifts which are quickly melting and the rain this week has kept the dust down and the trails in great shape.  The Youth Trail Crew started this week and had a fun first day clearing drains on Putt Putt in a torrential hail storm but on the plus side it was easy to see the drainage dips and water bars working.  They spent the rest of the week working on bridges on the History Trail.  We are up to 4 bridges built with a few approaches left to fill in with gravel.  Next week we have 2 volunteer groups from TSS and the Teton Trail Runners to help us move lumber into the woods for the next bridges.  We also looked at a reroute on the Big Munger Trail with the USFS and DIRT.  They have a grant to bring severely eroded sections of that trail up to standards and when it is done it should make for a much more enjoyable experience for all trail users.  I would recommend that as the trail of the week as the views are stunning and the wildflowers are in full bloom right now!
