Over the weekend the public bike rental system, Ride Salem, went live again after the COVID hiatus.

It looks like there is a new station in Riverfront Park, but according to the system map one in Bush Park is still in progress.

With ODOT and Forth/Cascadia Mobility involved statewide, we can hope for system expansion:
- e-Bikes to make them attractive to an even greater range of bicycling skill and fitness
- Trikes, hand-cycles, and more accessible bikes
- More stations across a greater geographical reach in Salem so they are more usable for actual errands, not just cruising around in the parks
- And above all, bike lanes in downtown so that ordinary people can bike from the transit station or train station to most destinations downtown
