Bikeshare comes to Columbia

Bikeshare is here.

On July 6, Downtown Columbia was the site of the official launch and ribbon cutting of Howard County Bikeshare, a network of seven bicycle stations at Howard County General Hospital, Howard Community College, One Merriweather in the Merriweather District, The Mall in Columbia, Lake Kittamaqundi, Oakland Mills Village Center and Blandair Park.

Seventy electric assist and traditional bikes are now available for short term use to Bikeshare program members.  Major sponsors of the new transportation initiative include The Horizon Foundation, The Howard Hughes Corporation and the Columbia Association.
