Fort Collins Bike Share
Taking Our Bike Library to the Next Level
Building on the success of the Fort Collins Bike Library, City staff and partners are working on plans for an automated, self-checkout bike share system with conveniently located public bikes that you can check out for trips around town. As part of the 2014 Bicycle Master Plan we are currently working on a business plan that will be available Spring 2014. The Plan will include the vision for the future system, as well as an assessment of demand, costs, and steps towards implementation.

WHAT IS BIKE SHARING?
Bike share is an innovative public transportation program offering a network of bicycles for short-term use. Through automated, self-service bike check-out stations, bike share combines the flexibility and freedom of a bicycle with the accessibility of public transportation. Bike share systems enhance mobility within a city, promote tourism and economic development, and offer a fun and healthy way of getting around town. Extending the reach of public transit, bike share systems create connections - connecting people to where they live, work and play, and to other modes of transportation. A great way to stay up-to-date on the bike share world is at bikeshare.com.
