Billings to consider bike/scooter share program

BILLINGS, Mont. - Billings City Council will hear the results of a bike and scooter share program feasibility study at their meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Proposed stations for the bikes and scooters include: MSU Billings, Highland Apartments, Yellowstone Medical Center, North Park, Billings Clinic/Dehler Park, Pioneer Park, Greyhound Station, 8th Ave N & N 29th St, Billings Community Center, Yellowstone Art Museum, Billings Public Library, MET Downtown Transfer Center, Skypoint (2nd Ave N & Broadway), Commercial area along Montana Avenue, Billings YMCA, Wise Wonders Science Museum and Community Park.

The feasibility study showed 53% of respondents were in favor of a share program. Safety was their primary concern. Top reasons respondents thought the share program could be a good idea included concern for the environment and the program seemed fun.
