UPDATE: Boise GreenBike Director Responds to LimeBike Presentation Before City Council
By Harrison Berry

What cruises on two wheels, is available to all comers and could be rolling into town? LimeBike, a "dockless" bike-share company, is set to deliver a presentation to the Boise City Council May 15 during its regularly scheduled Tuesday work session meeting.

Quote:
Should LimeBike rides hit Boise's streets, they would likely be competitive with the Boise GreenBike program, which is a division of Valley Regional Transit. Its director, Dave Fotsch, could not be reached for comment.

Boise GreenBike Director Dave Fotsch expressed skepticism following a presentation before the Boise City Council from a possible competing bike-share program, LimeBike, during a May 15 work session at Boise City Hall.

“This is certainly going to present significant challenges to us if they’re allowed to operate in this market,” Fotsch said.

Over the last several years, Boise GreenBike has cultivated community partners such as the Ada County Highway District and the City of Boise, and sponsors like St. Luke's and SelectHealth, to deploy more than 120 bikes in the downtown core, but a purchase order and a donation from a sister program will more than double the size of its fleet by year's end and allow GreenBike to expand into the Boise State University neighborhood.

I went to go book a trip this in spring and I've noticed after the first week of March; Alaska will no longer serve Salt Lake City from Boise. I looked into the summer and it is gone. Delta will go back to being the only carrier on the route with six flights a day.

Group wants to get transportation on track

The acronym for the Association of Oregon Rail and Transit Activists is AORTA. And like the artery it shares a name with, the organization is hoping to pump new blood into Eastern Oregon’s defunct passenger rail system.
Quote:
The association wants to revive a shorter version of the Pioneer line, which would span from Portland to Boise and include stops in Pendleton, Hinkle, La Grande, Baker City, Ontario, The Dalles and Hood River.

I would take a train to Portland if it was available. On a side note has anyone heard anything about the downtown circulator? It's been awhile.

Unfortunately, this is a real pipe dream. This rail line would be of little benefit to those in Portland or Boise when there are 7-8 flights a day between each city. Train fares would have to be really low to encourage people to use a train versus their own cars or purchasing an airfare. In California, a similar distance is still about $60 on Amtrak for an advanced fare. Not a great value considering how much longer a train ride is compared to driving or flying. And it isn’t an eight hour drive between Boise and Portland as quoted in that article. So some train enthusiasts and rural Oregonians aren’t going to keep a rail line going. Just being realistic...
