Locations Set for CoGo Bike Share System; Mid-Summer Launch Planned [Columbus Underground] @colsunderground


Planning is starting to ramp up for CoGo, the newly-branded Columbus bike share system. Organizers hope to have 30 stations installed and 300 bikes available for use by the end of July. They have also released a map showing where the stations will be; the system will extend south to Schiller Park, west to COSI, east to Parsons Avenue and north to 4th Avenue in the Short North.

Annual and daily passes will be available, with a special “founding member” pre-sale starting in June, once the CoGo website is up. [Keep reading at Columbus Underground]
