Mayor John Cranley introduced an ordinance Wednesday giving a total of $1.9 million in funding to five bicycling projects in the City Of
Cincinnati. The projects include Cincy Bike Share, and bike trails along Wasson
Way, the Oasis Corridor, Mill Creek and the Ohio River Trail West.
Under the plan, $1.1 million would be given to begin the Cincy
Bike Share program, while $200,000 would be given to each of the four bike
Together, the bike projects will have a transformative effect on
"We're working everyday to make Cincinnati the best city in
America to live, work and raise a family," Mayor Cranley said. "This investment
in bike trails and cycling will go a long way to do just that."
Cincy Bike Share is a nonprofit group that will allow people to
rent bicycles and return them to any location, or "station," it operates. Cincy
Bike Share will have a network of 300 bicycles operating from 35 stations in
downtown, Over-the-Rhine and the Uptown area near the University of Cincinnati.
"I want to thank Mayor Cranley for taking the lead on bringing
bike share to Cincinnati," said Jason Barron, Executive Director of Cincy Bike
Share. "The bike share system will be a new, convenient, low-cost way to get
around town. The Mayor's strong support makes it possible to supersize the bike
share system to include Downtown, Over-the-Rhine, and also the Uptown
neighborhoods in an expanded phase one launch."
The Oasis Corridor bike trail will run from Downtown Cincinnati
to Lunken Airport, while the Wasson Way bike trail will run from Xavier
University to the Little Miami Bike Trail in Newtown.
"This investment will help connect this vital link from Smale
Central Riverfront Park to the rest of the city's trails," said Wym Portman, an
Oasis Corridor advocate. "This is great for the city."
Also, the funding will support development of Phases 5 and 6 of
the Mill Creek Greenway Trail, and design and planning work for the West Fork
Creek Greenway Trail between Mount Airy Forest and Mill Creek.
The Ohio River Trail West would run from Lower Price Hill to the
Gilday Riverside Playfield in its first phase.
Tom Croft, of the River West Working Group, said developing the
Ohio River Trail West will help efforts to improve Cincinnati's western
"We're very excited about this idea of an appropriation," Croft
said. "These funds will be incredibly helpful to getting our first phase
