Nice Ride & The Sharing Economy: Startup bumps to smooth riding

Anthony Ongaro, Marketing Director of Nice Ride bike sharing system, will discuss how Nice Ride functions as a local nonprofit, a local transportation system and a fantastic example of what can be accomplished with public-private partnerships. 

I'll discuss how Nice Ride is innovating by expanding into Bemidji, Minnesota with a new style of bike sharing project, and difficulties recently brought on by the bankruptcy of Public Bike Share Company, our hardware provider.

Nice Ride Minnesota is the Twin Cities bike sharing system. Launched in 2010, it was the largest bike sharing system in the country, and remains an industry leader today. Now with 170 stations and over 1,500 bikes, Nice Ride services over 4,000 members and 45,000 casual users per year.
