On August 27th, Linus Bike, a city bike manufacturer, responds to an article published for The Daily Tar Heel regarding the two year-long pilot bike sharing program being introduced to the students at the University of North Carolina.
According to the article, the pilot bike sharing program, thought up by University students Daniel Allen and Akhil Jariwala, will provide free one-day rentals to students who reside in three of the South Campus resident halls. However, Allen is hopeful that the program will develop across the rest of the campus. The article states, “The pilot is sponsored by the Residence Hall Association, the Department of Housing and Residential Education and several other organizations.” According to the article, students must return the bikes before midnight on the same day they’ve been checked out.
The article quotes Allen who explained, “We want to encourage bicycle transportation as a healthy, clean, sustainable alternative to motor vehicle transportation.” Linus Bike, manufacturer of city bikes, applauds the inspiring efforts of Allen and Jariwala. Linus Bikes representative China Reevers states, "Linus Bike wishes the program success and is hopeful that it will expand across the campus. By encourage cycling, students will have the opportunity to develop habits for a healthy lifestyle that will last long beyond their years at UNC."
According to article, Allen is hopeful that UNC students will be encouraged to consider environmentally friendly transportation options for the rest of their lives. The article states that by implementing the bike-sharing pilot, students will get from class to class more easily.
