There’s a new GREENbike station within convenient walking distance of UTA. The GREENbike Artspace Bridge Projects Station opened today at 230 S. 500 West, just steps from the Old Greek Town TRAX Station. GREENbike riders can check their bike in at the Artspace Station and make an easy connection to the TRAX Blue Line and the rest of the UTA system.
UTA Director of Planning Laura Hanson said the program gives public transit riders an efficient, eco-friendly way get from their homes or offices to UTA rail stations and bus stops.
“GREENbike is a good way to help mobility in our community,” said Hanson said. “It’s essential in bridging that first-and-last mile transit piece.”
Salt Lake City, Artspace, American Express and UTA worked with GREENbike to make the new station a reality.
“The Artspace Bridge Projects Station is a perfect example of community partnerships,” said GREENbike Founder and Director Ben Bolte.
The Artspace Bridge Projects Station includes affordable housing units, retail space and offices for nonprofits and small businesses. To ensure that residents and tenants can access the bike sharing program, GREENbike, with support from American Express, is providing free annual passes to those who live or work at Artspace.
GREENbike has 34 stations throughout the downtown area. Click here to sign up for GREENbike or learn more about the program.
