Bike-Share Program Installs Docking Stations on Campus

Last Updated on August 27, 2015 at 2:29 pm

Contractors have installed two solar-powered bike docking stations on or near the UTEP campus that are part of the City of El Paso’s new Bike Share Program that will be operated by the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority. The stations at Oregon Street next to the Hilton Garden Inn and the IC-4 (red) parking lot north of the University Library were selected because of their heavy foot traffic. The $720,000 federally funded program is set to begin in early September with 80 bicycles and eight docking stations mostly around downtown El Paso.
