Tampa selects CycleHop and Social Bicycles to establish bike share program


 Tampa, FL. CycleHop has been selected by the City of Tampa to fund, deploy, and operate Tampa’s bike share program. The bike share equipment will be provided by Social Bicycles.

 Social Bicycles is excited to work with CycleHop to bring the next generation of bike share technology to the City of Tampa. Residents and visitors will soon be able to travel using a new environmentally friendly form of public transportation. Our bikes are equipped with a GPS-enabled locking system which will lock to bike racks found at hub locations throughout downtown Tampa. Our system is more affordable and scalable than other technologies, and we hope to quickly spread throughout the Tampa Bay region,” Ryan Rzepecki, CEO of Social Bicycles.

CycleHop is a professional service organization focused on planning, launching, and operating world-class bike share programs. We work with cities to build reliable bike share service, deliver efficient operations, and provide a great experience for all.

CycleHop looks forward to implementing the Tampa Bay Bike Share program this coming fall.
