City Bike company Brooklyn Cruiser today announced it will partner with Pratt Institute, one of the pre-eminent design institutions in the world. The new initiative will offer incoming students affordable and sustainable transportation options through the availability of Brooklyn Cruiser bikes. Additionally, the brand will be tapping into the talented student base at Pratt to design branded cycling accessories on behalf of Brooklyn Cruiser that will be put into production.

We're pleased to offer our students bikes as a smart transportation alternative, and to create opportunities for them with real world design scenarios,” said Ludovic Leroy, Director of Corporate Partnerships at Pratt. “We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership,” he added.
