SPRINGFIELD & EUGENE, ORE. – On Friday, April 19, 2024, Eugene’s popular public bike share program, PeaceHealth Rides, marks its 6th birthday with a 100-bike expansion of the two-wheeled transit service in Eugene, while also expanding into downtown Springfield. 

Upon expansion, PeaceHealth Rides will grow to approximately 450 bikes. Specific locations of bike share bikes and hubs will be visible within the PeaceHealth Rides app and website map beginning April 19, including the bike share service area and hubs in downtown Springfield. With the addition of the downtown Springfield service area, anyone riding the iconic blue bikes will be able to ride within and between the Eugene and Springfield service areas. 

To celebrate this expansion, new riders can receive a free month of bike share membership by downloading the PeaceHealth Rides app and signing up for the Monthly Plan with promo code SPRINGRIDES24. PeaceHealth Rides is a collaboration between the cities of Eugene and Springfield, Lane Transit District, the University of Oregon, PeaceHealth, and Cascadia Mobility.

“We are proud and excited to expand PeaceHealth Rides into Springfield” said Brodie Hylton, Executive Director of Cascadia Mobility. “Our goal is to make it easy for people to reach their destination by bike. With 450 bike share bikes and expansion into Springfield, the easy travel choice is bike share + transit.” 

“We all have busy lives. Driving a car is the main way we travel from point A to point B. Being able to bike, walk, or ride the bus for some of our trips keeps us and our climate healthy,” said Jameson Auten, CEO of Lane Transit District. “Lane Transit District is grateful to Cascadia Mobility for providing a reliable way of getting around that makes our busy lives a little easier, while creating a stronger, more connected community.” 

“This expansion of the PeaceHealth Bike share program makes it even easier for people to choose safe, accessible, climate friendly biking options across our metropolitan area,” said Mayor Lucy Vinis of City of Eugene. “We are grateful to PeaceHealth for their partnership, commitment and generosity, and proud of our community for embracing biking as an alternative to getting into a car.” 

“I appreciate the partnerships and efforts made to bring PeaceHealth Rides to Springfield” said Mayor Sean VanGordon. “Because of both, we can now offer community members and visitors an additional transportation choice to travel around Springfield to shop, recreate or just enjoy a day out and about in our beautiful city.” “We are proud to be the title sponsor of the PeaceHealth Rides program as it expands into Springfield and increases the size of its bike fleet,” said Jim McGovern, MD, chief hospital executive of the PeaceHealth Oregon network. “This expansion will provide more members of the communities that we serve easier access to a low-cost and healthier transportation alternative, and we are happy to have the opportunity to help play a role in it.”
