Zipping along the streets of Columbus has never been easier! CoGo Bike Share began from an initiative by Mayor Michael B. Coleman. After conducting a feasibility study in 2011, the system launched on July 30, 2013 with only 30 stations and 300 bikes. Now the system boasts 80+ stations and 600+ bikes to help you get from point A to point B whenever you need them -- 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Simply check out a bike at any automated bike station, then ride it around from station to station while checking out all Columbus has to offer. When you've reached your destination, just dock your bike at the nearest station to complete your session, and you'll be on your way.
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.
CoGo Bike Share is a project of the City of Columbus.
