Where the study took place
A $100,000 study found 55 out a sample of 509 bicycle parking spots in Eugene/Springfield in use - and concluded the community should add 2,376 more. The community has 2,934 existing spaces. The study looked at spaces in 14 centers of bicycle activity across the region, like RiverBend Hospital, when 1 of 24 spots was in use. At Gateway Mall, 12 of 66 bike spots were in use.
