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 6-21-19

The longest day of the year should be the warmest right?  With cool temps the trails are still in great shape and slowly melting out.  Most of the south facing trails on Teton Pass are good to go but there are still drifts lingering in the north facing trees.  The Teton Freedom Riders are having their first Pass Bash of the year tomorrow so head by the coach for a shuttle ride up the pass.  Everything on Snow King is dry and good to go and our ambassadors have been clearing some new downed trees from the winds this week off of Putt Putt and West Game.  Our Youth Trail Crew started this week and this hearty bunch had a busy week, unloading the 12,000 lbs of rock from the helicopter drops on Josie’s Ridge, clearing and cleaning drainage on Crater and History, brush cutting for line of sight on KC, and building a turnpike and reroute around a beaver pond on West Game.  Look for the crew out on the trails this summer and remember they always love treats after a hard days work.
