Enhancing bike friendliness in our region

The MPO, with the help of TxDOT’s mobility and bicycle coordinator, is working to coordinate all of the planning agencies in the region and avid cyclists to enhance the bike friendliness of the region. A comprehensive inventory of bicycle infrastructure has been put together, and planners and cyclists have been meeting to look at how to prioritize and maximize the connectivity of bicycle lanes, trails, and shoulders.

Over the years to come, the goal is that bicycling will feel much more comfortable in the region, and many more people will be able to make their commute on a bike! Please contact us if you would like to participate in the coordination meetings.

Bike sharing program

We are pleased to announce that the MPO is proposing and seeking funding for a bike sharing program right here in El Paso.

The program would include bicycle borrowing stations in places like downtown, UTEP, and at Sun Metro stations, and would have multiple bicycles available to use for traveling around the city. The use of the bicycles will be easy and cheap, a great travel alternative!

Stay tuned for more details.
