Resident input sought for CoGo expansion locations

Posted on February 15, 2017 at 10:18 AM by Laura Oldham

Students at The Ohio State University are working with four Columbus communities, including Grandview Heights, to research and recommend 26 new CoGo bike share station locations. The students researched bike share systems across the country in order to identify successful bike share systems and cite criteria. Keeping those criteria in mind, the students will use the semester to create a report that recommends new locations to the participating communities. At the end of the semester, student groups will present their findings to the respective city councils. A grant is sought from the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) to cover 80% of the costs and bring bike share to these communities.

The class created a website to seek resident input on station locations and to post information and updates related to research findings. The main page, a class blog, is a space for general information and for interested persons to learn more about project developments. Each city has its own section on the website that allows for city-specific news. Residents can suggest locations using the interactive map found under “Suggest A Station.”
