Federal Grant Assistance to the Yellow Bikes Program

The Fayette Alliance supports LFUCG’s federal grant application to finance and improve the “Yellow Bikes” community bike program.

With additional funding, LFUCG can purchase state-of-the-art equipment that will enhance the Yellow Bikes program—such as integrating easy check out facilities, GPS and odometer readings on all bikes, and credit card tracking on lost or stolen bikes.

These measures will increase the viability of using alternative modes of transportation in Lexington’s urban core—making the city a vibrant destination for knowledge-based professionals and market investment, while reducing growth pressure on our limited Bluegrass farmland and minimizing the carbon footprint of our metro area.
