Nice Ride Minnesota is the nonprofit that started the Twin Cities bike share system. We continue to own the green bikes and stations and are contracting with Motivate Minnesota to operate them. We also oversee the contract under which Motivate is implementing a dockless (blue) bike pilot.
At Nice Ride Minnesota, we think bike sharing is a public good. It should meet public goals for quality, reliability, equity, and order. We are working to make that happen through our contracts with Motivate Minnesota (now owned by Lyft) and through participation in the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan, our founding membership in the North American Bike Share Association, and our founding role in the Twin Cities Shared Mobility Collaborative.
