Greensboro bike sharing program expanded. First of its kind in the nation.

Recommended Posts

There is a new city wide bike sharing program. I think the program has been underway for the past three months but the number of bikes have recently grown to where you see them everywhere. If you have seen lime green bikes parked all over downtown and on the UNCG campus thats what its about. It actually started at UNCG and the downtown area but grew to a city wide program August 1st. The company is based out of San Francisco, California and chose Greensboro for its first North Carolina program. I believe the bike is activated with your smart phone so nobody just can't go and steal a parked bike. You dont have to return the bike to a designated station just park it when you are done and the wheels will lock. They have GPS wireless technology. The technology lets riders know which bikes are available and where they are located. You can rent by the month, day or hour. The LimeBike program in Greensboro was the first dockless bike sharing program in the United States. Great to see Greensboro take the lead in innovative biking technology such as this. The program compliments the downtown and citywide greenway system.

Winston-Salem now has a similar program with a company called Zagster with white bikes and blue trim.  So the Triad has taken a lead with this kind of bike sharing program.
