Ride Salem Rental Bike System Opens with Soft Launch

While the Cap and Invest bill to curb carbon pollution now seems dead, Ride Salem, the rental bike system, launched over the weekend.

In that context, the launch is definitely one small step forward while we take two or three or more giant steps backwards.

In this we are consistently celebrating small ornamental wins while we fail and lose on the bigger structural change.

Still, there is opportunity for the system to grow and for it to help catalyze change, especially on downtown streets, which are currently ill-suited to a public bike system.

Check out the system and consider making it part of your own transportation toolbox. The more who use it, the better it and the better our whole system will be.
