Nice Ride Minnesota is an innovative new bike sharing program—the largest in the country. In an effort to facilitate transportation that is both environmentally friendly and inexpensive, Nice Ride Minnesota has shared bicycles located in stations around the city, currently in Minneapolis, only. To participate, you pay a subscription fee to join and a trip fee each time you use a bike. To give you an idea of the cost, the current subscription fees are as follows:
- 24 hours–. $5
- 30 days– $30
- 1 year– $60
- Student 1 year–$50
Once you have your subscription you pay a trip fee:
- 0-30—no fee
- Up to 60 minutes–$1.50
- Up to 90 minutes–$4.50
- Each additional half hour–$6.00
To avoid a trip fee, you can return your bike each half hour and take out another bike.
Phase 2 of the program includes expansion plans to the University Avenue/Grand Avenue Corridor area, as well as Downtown St. Paul. Do you have a spot in mind that would be a perfect place the Nice Ride bikes? Attend the next St. Paul planning workshop and share you opinions.
