EUGENE, Ore. – Eugene's new bike share system, that's expected to hit the streets in April, has announced PeaceHealth as the title sponsor for the program.
Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis made the announcement when the bikes were unveiled at the Hilyard Community Center Wednesday morning.
There will be 300 bikes and 35 stations around town. City staff believe the program will promote healthier living, be more environmentally friendly and help reduce traffic congestion.
Rand O’Leary, the chief executive of PeaceHealth Oregon, said he is thrilled to be part of it.
"It’s really integral to our mission in this community,” O’Leary said. “It's about delivering care and creating healthy communities and promoting wellness.”
He said PeaceHealth is committed to investing more than $900,000 to the program over the next three years.
