The City of Toledo, Metroparks Toledo and various local organizations have partnered with Charleston-based Gotcha Bikes to bring 100 bicycles and 18 docking stations to Toledo this summer. The program, expected to launch in August or September, will allow for community members and visitors to rent a bicycle for transportation purposes or recreation.
Through an app, all payments are made online, and the rider will be able to unlock the bike using an activation code sent to their phone. End the ride by returning the bike to one of the 18 hubs. A display bike is available for view at Wildwood Metropark outside the visitors center. In addition to this bike share, the University of Toledo is introducing green transportation on campus this fall with the launch of an electric scooter sharing program through the company Lime.
