The City of Chattanooga’s Bike Chattanooga Bicycle Transit System will add capacity to Chattanooga’s newest public mobility option when they install two new stations and add capacity to an existing station this week.
A 19-dock station will be placed near Market Street & East 4th Street next to Hair of the Dog Pub and the Sports Barn parking lot.
A 15-dock station will be placed next to UTC’s Maclellan Gym on Douglas Street. This will be the fifth station located on UTC campus. This station will create additional network density on campus and serve as an easy access point to the Riverwalk.
“UTC is happy to continue our relationship with the Chattanooga bike share program. This partnership allows us to continue our efforts to reduce our campus carbon footprint by encouraging energy--efficient transportation, as well as promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for our students,” said Dr. John Delaney, vice chancellor for Student Development.
Four docks will be added to the existing station at TVA on Market Street, making it a 15--dock station.
The two new stations and expansion of the TVA station will complete installation of the initial Bike Chattanooga footprint, according to Chattanooga Bicycle Coordinator Philip Pugliese. "This completes our phase one installations for 2012,” he said. “We are looking forward to 2013 and the opportunity to further connect people and the places where they work, live, and play. As people experience the system, we welcome suggestions for new locations."
