Valparaiso Ready To Start Bike Share Program, Look For New Chicago Dash Depot

City of Valparaiso website

The city of Valparaiso is getting ready to launch a cooperative venture with Valparaiso University that will give students an opportunity to easily travel into the downtown business district from the VU campus. The city government is also taking the initial steps to obtain and transform an underused ex-factory site into, among other uses, a new depot and parking lot for the popular Chicago Dash bus service between Valparaiso and Chicago.  

Economic Development Director Patrick Lyp was on "Regionally Speaking" on Thursday to talk about both projects.  Here's the conversation, beginning with Lyp talking about the Bike Share program.
