Car and bike sharing programs have become fairly common in big cities, and Columbus, Ohio is about to join the trend with CoGo, a new bike sharing program! Racks and stations are being set up all over town, with a plan to make 300 bikes available to Columbus visitors and residents starting this week.  To rent a bike, just go to a station (which you can find with the app), swipe a debit or credit card to unlock a bike, and go! A bike costs $6 a day, provided you dock it every 30 minutes (you’re charged $3 if you go over). Stations are well under 30 minutes apart, so you should be able to make it in time. For members ($75 per year), that half hour is free, so you can enjoy a bike any time to get you from A to B.

Locals, have you seen any stations being set up? How are they looking? You can find CoGo on Facebook here, and there’s a writeup on the Parks and Recreation page here.
