Good news for the local bike share program.

The Texarkana Museum System, in partnership with the City of Texarkana, Texas and the Texarkana Arts and Historic District members have received a Union Pacific Community Foundation grant totaling $6,000 for the continued growth and expansion of the UPcycle bike share program.

The grant will focus on the addition of several “dockless” stations to increase access to the program by establishing satellite locations.

In addition to this, funds will be used to sponsor bike tours throughout the downtown area this fall and coming spring. A bike tour schedule with more details will be released soon.

For more information, please contact the Museum of Regional History at 903-793-4831, or call 903-798-3901 for more details.
