As people start to think differently about transportation — especially millennials who are less likely to own or want to own car — bike shares are sweeping the nation So if you don’t want the hassle or expense of even owning a bike, you can rent one for hops around town.
It’s appropriate that this movement is growing in Cleveland during the year that Sustainable Cleveland 2019, the city’s climate action plan, has declared this the “Year of Sustainable Transportation.”
The UH Bikes Cleveland bike share, sponsored by University Hospitals, has been around town for a few months with its “early adopter” fleet, but now it’s ready for its full launch of 250 bikes. It will officially kick it off at Public Square, bringing a bunch of new bikes there. But it needs help returning them to their stations, and it’s inviting volunteers to ride them around downtown for a bit and then return them to their designated stations. Register here.
The launch takes place immediately preceding the Sustainable Cleveland summit at Public Hall, which will celebrate the past year’s accomplishments in the area of sustainable transportation.
