The Wheel House commuter bike hub lets you skip the traffic and enjoy the ride
Pilot program offers secure overnight bike parking and e-bike charging in Stilson Parking Lot.
The Wheel House commuter bike hub is now open in Stilson Parking Lot offering secure overnight bike parking and e-bike charging. Commuters can park, lock, and charge their bikes overnight for free inside The Wheel House. Low-cost e-bike rentals for commuters are also available.
Those who live and work in Jackson Hole can use The Wheel House to skip the summer traffic and enjoy a stress-free ride to and from work on the pathways. This pilot program enables people commuting over Teton Pass or from the Westbank to park their car, hop on their bike, and cycle the rest of their commute.
“Most people who live or work in Jackson Hole have experienced being stuck in traffic on Highway 22,” Friends of Pathways Executive Director Katherine Dowson said. “The Wheel House makes it easy for folks to get out of their car, onto a bike, and enjoy their ride to work.”
The Wheelhouse is simple! Park your personal bike overnight or rent an e-bike. All people who use the free overnight bike parking service are requested to sign up and to provide commuter travel data through an app designed specifically for this project, OpenPATH. OpenPATH download instructions will be emailed after signing up for the program.
“The goal of the Wheel House is to make it easy for commuters to bike to work and for partner organizations to better understand the energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, time savings and quality of life impact of providing overnight bike parking. This will help improve and inform further programming,” Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities Executive Director Alicia Cox said.
