USF to announce bike sharing program

USF Bike Sharing

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The University of South Florida is expected to roll out its new bicycle sharing program next week.

Featuring 100 bicycles, the program is part of an effort on reducing the carbon footprint on campus. Initial funding will allow students and staff to ride up to two hours each day at no cost.

The program, called Share-A-Bull Bikes, will feature bikes equipped with a GPS system which helps riders to easily locate available bikes through a smartphone app or through the website at http://www.usf.edu/shareabull.

Riders enjoy the convenience of picking up and dropping off a bike at racks close to their campus location and ultimate destination. Campus officials said, some of the bikes were put into service earlier this month, which has already led to about 1,000 participants riding more than 4,500 miles.
