Bike Scranton Season Wraps Up

The University’s 2015 participation in this bike share program was very successful. In 5 months we loaned bikes 312 times, with 188 of those loans being to undergraduates. Special thanks to the Lackawanna Heritage Valley for inviting the University to partner on this new program. Bike Scranton will be back in April of 2016. Thanks to everyone for your positive response to this green initiative!

Bike Scranton at the Weinberg Memorial Library

logo_bikescranton

As of today the Library has 3 bicycles available for borrowing. The program is called Bike Scranton, which is a cooperative program between the University of Scranton Office of Sustainability, and the Lackawanna Valley Heritage Authority. All University of Scranton students, faculty, and staff as well as Lackawanna County Library System card holders will be permitted to check out a bicycle as long as they are at least 18 years of age. Each bicycle comes with a lock and an adjustable helmet upon checkout. The borrowing period for each bicycle is unlimited, but all bicycles must be returned before the library closes. Soon there will be 3 more bikes available, for a total of 6.

Other participating locations in the bike Scranton program are the office of the Lackawanna Valley Heritage Association (http://www.lhva.org/), the Hilton Scranton hotel, and Cedar Bike Shop (http://www.cedarbikeandpaddle.com/). Bikes checked out from the Weinberg Memorial Library must be returned here, and we will not accept returns from any of the other Bike Scranton locations.

The Lackawanna Valley Heritage Authority owns all of the bicycles. Bike Scranton will be seasonal, and the transportation and storage of the bicycles will be the responsibility of our University Facilities staff.  The bikes will be routinely maintained via Cedar Bike, and the University Office of Sustainability is in the process of developing bike routes throughout the city.

Please ask at the Circulation Desk if you have any questions.
