Developed through retailer and advertiser partnerships, EveryoneBikes is a Central Ohio community based bike sharing organization. Retailers partners provide bicycles to riders via a simple transaction. Users can then borrow a bike, run errands, visit the various retailers throughout Central Ohio neighborhoods, stop and enjoy food/drink/shopping and then return the bike for others to enjoy.
Our pilot here in the Short North community of Columbus, OH will evolve over time but our goal today is to prove that communities can provide a safe, cost-effective transportation alternative cooperative to communities.
Eventually, we'd like to move beyond the Short North and have communities throughout the US adopt our idea.
Want to do a bike-share in your community? Take our idea and make it yours. And keep us posted on how things work out.
