CoGo Bike Sharing Program
The CoGo Bike Share system now boasts 41 stations and 365 bikes to
help you get from point A to point B whenever you need them. Launched in July 2013 with a network of 300 bicycles and 30 stations located throughout downtown Columbus. Intended to provide Columbus residents and visitors with an additional transportation option for getting around town, CoGo is fun, easy, and affordable.
The system is available for use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The station network provides twice as many docking points as bicycles, assuring that an available dock to return your bicycle is always nearby. The system includes a fleet of specially designed, heavy-duty, very durable bicycles that are locked into a network of docking stations.

How does bike sharing work?
The automated system features annual and 24-hour memberships which can be easily purchased at a station or online. Each time a member uses a bike, the first 30 minutes are free, followed by incremental charges each half hour thereafter. Annual members receive a small key fob device that unlocks the bike at any station. Walk-up users are able to sign up with a credit card at any kiosk and given a code for every use of a bike. Then you can use the bike for as many trips as you want within the limit of your membership. It's ideal for short trips that are 30 minutes or less.
About the Bikes...
The bikes are an aluminum step-through frame that is light, strong and durable. Easily adjustable seating, active lighting, front mounted luggage carrier, fenders, and puncture resistant tires making the bikes efficient and easy to use.
Bike Sharing is an Opportunity!
There are some great ways you can help bring bike sharing into your community. We are continually seeking sponsors to help expand and improve the reach of the system. If you are a business owner, you can provide your employees with memberships or discounts to use the system, or perhaps sponsor a station and display your company logo as a grass roots supporter, create special offers or events to engage the community, or provide an amenity for your tenants.
If you wish to learn more about the bike sharing program, have questions about being a sponsor, or simply would like to provide feedback, please contact Tara Newmyer or visit the official CoGo website.
