BILLINGS, Mont. – Billings City Council will hear the results of a feasibility study on the replacement of bicycles and scooters at its meeting on Tuesday, February 16.
A bike / scooter sharing program would mean people could rent a bike, take it where they need to go, and then let the next person do it.
Suggested stations for bikes and scooters are: MSU Billings, Highland Apartments, Yellowstone Medical Center, North Park, Billings Clinic / Dehler Park, Pioneer Park, Greyhound Station, 8th Ave N & N 29th Street, Billings Community Center, Yellowstone Art Museum, Public Library from Billings, MET Downtown Transfer Center, Skypoint (2nd Ave N & Broadway), business park along Montana Avenue, Billings YMCA, Wise Wonders Science Museum and Community Park.
The feasibility study found that 53% of respondents were in favor of a share program. Safety was their main concern. The top reasons respondents thought the share program was a good idea were because of concern for the environment, and the program seemed fun.
