Author: Pioneer Valley Planning Association in collaboration with the Bike Share Feasibility Study Advisory Committee and municipalities of Northampton, Amherst, Holyoke, Springfield, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst


The Pioneer Valley region and its member communities are committed to creating more livable communities and downtowns, as well as reducing single occupancy vehicle trips and the resulting air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The region is working to increase alternative modes of transportation, including expanding infrastructure for biking, walking, bus and rail service. The region is also seeking to establish commuter rail service along the north-south Amtrak rail line serving Springfield, Holyoke and Northampton, and a bike share program could provide a complementary “last mile” component to this service.
