A regional bikeshare system has been a desired transportation option for many years, and on behalf of CATMA, University of Vermont and Champlain College, we are excited to lead the launch of a pilot bikeshare on our campus’ and in a few other key nearby destinations as Phase I later this summer. Our bikeshare project team has selected Gotcha Bike as the system operator.
Gotcha Bike is the nation’s most advanced and sustainable bike sharing program thanks to the nation’s first Smart Bike, The Gotcha Bike. It is a fully customizable bike share program designed to complement and serve as a first and last mile mobility solution. It is a transportation option that we believe is viable and has been a missing link in our transportation network.
