EUGENE, Ore. -- The PeaceHealth bike network is now offering ways for riders to earn credits for free rides.

A few weeks ago, PeaceHealth Rides added new features, including allowing riders to earn $1 credits towards their accounts by parking their bikes at “high priority hubs.”

The two high-priority hubs -- the HEDCO Education Building and 15th Avenue and University Street -- are marked on the PeaceHealth Rides app by yellow money icons. There is no set schedule for when those hubs will be considered high priority.

Many students believe this feature will be beneficial to them because they are more incentivized to drop their bikes off at high priority stations. This will result in them having multiple credits that can go towards their membership fee or future rides.

Another way to earn credits is to take a bike that is not in a hub already and bring it to a high-priority station. This will allow riders to receive another dollar credit. Some people leave their bikes outside the designated stations and are charged a fee by PeaceHealth.

PeaceHealth Rides said the new features will help support system rebalancing efforts. Riders returning bikes to the high-priority hubs, with the incentive of free ride credits, ensures there are always bikes available in those highly-utilized stations. A representative with PeaceHealth said it's a fun way for users to earn extra ride time and support the operations of their bike network.
