Columbus has been awarded a large grant, nearly $1 million, by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission to construct more stations.
The final decision on whether or not to accept the $990,000 grant was put forward to the Columbus City Council on July 31. It was passed as an emergency measure, which means it will take effect immediately.
According to the Columbus City Council Meetin notes, the expansion will provide 26 bike stations and over 230 additional bikes to the CoGo network.
In Upper Arlington, the stations will be divided between the town center and Lane Avenue. In Bexley, all four stations will be in the town center. In Grandview Heights, stations will be in both the town center and Grandview Yard. Around Columbus, neighborhoods to receive the 13 stations will be Linden, Near East side, Franklin Park, Fifth by Northwest, and University District.
CoGo provides a variety of plans. For $8, customers can purchase a day pass, which includes unlimited 30-minute rides over a 24-hour period. For $18, customers can buy a 3-day-pass, which lasts for 72 hours. Finally, annual passes are available for $75 (or $7/month). Riders are encouraged to download Transit App to locate bikes available to rent.
