NICE RIDE MINNESOTA'S PRIMARY PROGRAM IS THE OPERATION OF A PUBLIC BIKE SHARING SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM (198 STATIONS AND 1,836 BIKES IN 2016) CREATES A SIMPLE, LOW-COST ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION SOLUTION TO INCREASE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LEVELS, REDUCE CONGESTION, REDUCE DEPENDENCE ON FOSSIL FUELS AND AUTO EMISSIONS, AND ENHANCE URBAN VITALITY. THE SYSTEM COMPLEMENTS PUBLIC TRANSIT AND CAR-SHARING PROGRAMS, PROVIDING GREATER TRANSPORTATION CHOICES. THE PURCHASE OF EQUIPMENT IS FUNDED THROUGH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE CONTRIBUTIONS. APPROXIMATELY 60% OF OPERATING COSTS ARE COVERED BY SUBSCRIPTION AND FEE REVENUE; THE REMAINDER IS COVERED BY PRIVATE CONTRIBUTIONS.
