Neighbors Building Neighborhoods for the City of Muskogee is using donated funds to purchase a new bike share program that will be housed at the Depot Green as part of the Muskogee Wellness Initiative.
Representatives from Saint Francis Health System recently presented the check to recipients. A concrete pad has been poured close to the Centennial Trail Head, at 205 Elgin Street, for the docking station.
The bike share program will be the first of its kind in Muskogee. The public will be able to check out a bike, for a small fee, from the dock station for use on the Centennial Trail or the downtown area. Users will have the option to purchase a single bicycle use or to purchase a membership card for repeated use of the bike share program. After using the bicycle, the user will return it to the dock. The dock station will have seven bikes available.
The program is expected to be ready to use by fall.
