EUGENE, Ore. - Ridesharing is a sensitive topic in the city of Eugene, with pushback over the years from some city leaders against companies like Uber and Lyft. 

Those options still don't exist in Eugene, but what about sharing bicycles? That's the plan one business owner is working on. Lindsey Harward calls her company Eugene Bike Share. 

According to the city of Eugene, the program costs riders anywhere from a couple dollars per day, to yearly memberships that, in other cities, cost between $60 and $100. 

Hayward's current plan calls for 300 bicycles. There would be more than 30 pick up and drop off locations.
