CHARLESTON, S.C., Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Gotcha announced today they are launching Augusta University's first bike share system, JagRide, in Augusta, G.A. this month. Augusta students, faculty, and staff will have access to 18 bikes at 3 hubs around campus, available for 24/7 use.
Launching on January 15th, the bike share system promises to be an affordable, accessible, and sustainable transportation option for the university and health system. Gotcha's bike share services will include the siting, installation, operation, maintenance, and ongoing management of the system in partnership with the university.
"We're excited to provide a micro-transit solution for our collegiate partner, Augusta University," said Sean Flood, CEO and founder of Gotcha. "Our model allows schools to provide affordable, healthy shared mobility options that connect the campus with the larger community in a safe, efficient, and sustainable way."
The JagRide bike share system will include 18 GPS-enabled 3-speed pedal bikes with Augusta University branding. The hubs will be located at the Health Science campus, the Riverfront campus, and the Summerville campus. Augusta University students and staff can access bikes for free for 30 minutes per day and $5 per hour after the first 30 minutes.
"Gotcha's bike share system offers a transportation solution that is easy to access, good for the environment, promotes physical activity and exercise, and keeps costs down compared to building more parking lots and garages," said LeDarius Scott, President of Augusta University's Student Government Association. "Our partnership with Gotcha assists in Augusta's goal for becoming a healthier, more sustainable, active campus."
