greenride bikeshare launches in vermont

greenride bikeshare, Vermont’s first public bikesharing program, launched on April 18, 2018. The system features 80 bikes at 17 stations in Burlington, South Burlington, and Winooski, with more bikes planned for early summer. The program’s mission is to transform the region by providing a high quality, convenient and affordable bikeshare system that will connect people to more places where they live, work and play in Chittenden County.

Bikeshare systems consist of a fleet of bicycles provided at a network of stations located throughout an area. Bicycles are available on demand, providing fast and easy access for short trips, transit-linked trips, and tourist trips. Bikeshare can deliver a variety of mobility, economic, health, environmental, and safety benefits. When combined with other modes of transportation, bikeshare can provide a fundamental shift in the way people move about and make decisions on transportation.

The project team is made up of the Chittenden Area Transportation Management Association (CATMA), the University of Vermont, Champlain College, and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC), who is working with Gotcha Bike as the bikeshare vendor. The system is a public-private sponsorship with funding from title sponsors Ben & Jerry’s and Seventh Generation, with additional support from UVM, Champlain College, UVM Medical Center, City of Burlington, City of South Burlington, City of Winooski, BlueCross BlueShield VT, AARP VT, Burlington Electric Department, Healthy Living Market, and Burlington International Airport.
