Project Overview:

Nice Ride is a nonprofit bike sharing program new to the Twin Cities. Kiosks are currently located throughout Minneapolis – in uptown and downtown and on the University of Minnesota campus. Expansion is currently focused on North Minneapolis.

Twenty-four hour subscriptions are available with a credit card at the kiosk, and 30-day and yearly memberships are available online. Bikes are available 24/7 from April to November. 

Nice Ride exemplifies sustainable alternative transportation with over two dozen kiosks already located within the Energy Innovation Corridor. In total, 65 kiosks are in operation with approximately 600 bikes on the street!
