The first dockless on-demand bike share program on the East Coast is coming to UNCG. The technology is integrated into smart bikes and a smart phone app (no kiosk needed), and can be returned to designated bike racks throughout campus and the City of Greensboro. And rides will be economical.
This LimeBike, UNCG & City of GSO Partnership will have an official campus launch Thursday, June 1, at 10 a.m. at the Walker Circle behind the library tower. LimeBike CEO Toby Sun will be on site to share his vision for the program, along with comments from UNCG and City of Greensboro DOT officials, followed by demonstrations, free rides, Q&A and complimentary snacks.
Parking in Walker Deck will be complimentary. For directions: https://parking.uncg.edu/access/
The initiative will help bolster our university’s health, wellness, and sustainability goals. UNCG was the first Bicycle Friendly University in North Carolina, recognized by the League of American Cyclists in 2011.
UNCG is launching with 125 bikes in celebration of UNCG’s 125th anniversary.
The LimeBikes will be located at bike racks throughout campus with hubs at Kaplan Center, Oakland Deck near the pedestrian underpass, Elliott University Center and College Ave.
