Five New CoGo Bike Share Stations Being Added to System
Representatives from CoGo Bike Share and the City of Columbus released a joint announcement today about their system expansion that includes five new stations at popular locations and destinations, bringing the grand total to 46 stations and 365 bikes for rent.
“With each expansion we hope to accomplish two goals: fill in the existing stations and extend the boundaries of the stations as a whole,” said Derek Wurst, CoGo General Manager. “We’re doing some important extensions this time around, adding stations to heavily requested areas.”
The five new stations are located in the following spots:
- Lane Ave at the Olentangy Trail – near the Lane Avenue Bridge.
- Jaeger St & Whittier St – in front of the Giant Eagle grocery store.
- Thurman Ave & Bruck St – Near the new Barrett development.
- Fourth St & Rich St – Across the street from Dirty Frank’s, 16-Bit and other destinations.
- Third Ave & Yard St – In front of the Giant Eagle Market District.
This expansion represents an expansion to the overall footprint of CoGo, as it includes the new northmost station on Lane Avenue, southmost station on Thurman Avenue and westmost station on Third Avenue.
“The CoGo staff worked hard to take into account the many responses they received over the years on their surveys and through social media about where new stations should go,” said Wurst. “We received many votes for adding stations to Grandview and Merion Village, so we are slowly trying to extend those reaches, and with the new configuration, we think we’ve made it easy to get to these locations without large gaps between them.”
There’s no installation date being announced just yet for the Market District or Thurman Avenue stations, but the other three have already been installed and are functional.
