In focusThe Future Of Nice Ride
Starting late summer 2018, 1,500 new bikes will be added to Nice Ride’s existing bikeshare fleet in Minneapolis. The new bikes will have mobile-friendly, GPS technology and will not be required to be parked at physical stations — transforming Nice Ride into a unique, hybrid bike share system. Concurrently, Nice Ride is working with the City of Minneapolis, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, and urban planning leaders to develop virtual parking zones for the new dockless bikes. These zones will provide dedicated spaces to park these bikes, bringing consistency and dependability to the system. With five hundred additional parking zones, the expanded system offers innovative possibilities to increase equitable access to bikeshare in new neighborhoods in Minneapolis too. As the new bikes launch, Nice Ride users will see additional upgrades, including a new website, new mobile app, and more.
