Mobis Transportation to open Ore. bike transit center

Posted on August 31, 2010

On Tuesday, Long Beach, Calif.-based Mobis Transportation, a developer of sustainable bicycle and other alternative transportation infrastructure systems, announced plans to open the Bikestation Hillsboro bike transit center.

 

Located in the recently completed Hillsboro, Ore. Intermodal Transit Facility, one block from Tri-Met's Blue MAX transit line, Bikestation Hillsboro will provide members with a range of amenities, including electronically secure indoor bicycle parking, showers, restrooms, lockers, a bicycle self-repair stand with tools and transit information.

 

Bikestation Hillsboro anticipates reducing more than 50,000 vehicle miles traveled and mitigating the production of approximately 50,000 pounds of carbon emissions and other pollutants by the end of the first two years. Bikestation Hillsboro is scheduled to open for operation in late September 2010.

 

Bikestation Hillsboro will encourage broader usage of public transportation by addressing the issue of the first and last mile — the distance between a public transit stop and the commuter's destination. Often this distance can be too far to comfortably walk, creating an obstacle to greater use of public transit. By offering cyclists a wide range of services and amenities that make bike commuting easy, secure and convenient, Bikestation encourages broader usage of alternative transportation options, such as public transit.

 

Located at 265 SE 8th Avenue, Bikestation Hillsboro is more than 1,200 square feet with 35 electronically secure indoor bicycle parking spaces. Memberships are currently available for $96 per year, $12 per month, or $1 per day (sold in packs of 10), plus a $20 annual administrative fee. Early bird membership applications will be accepted through the month of September; the form can be found online at http://www.bikestation.com/.

 

Membership includes access to Bikestation Hillsboro and its services and amenities as well as to all other Bikestation bike transit centers located across the country including: Long Beach, Santa Barbara, Claremont, Covina, and Palo Alto, Calif.; and Washington, D.C.
