The Office of Sustainability is partnering with PikeRide to give eligible students free access to the bike-sharing service. PikeRide bikes typically cost $1 to unlock and $0.10 per minute to ride, but the fee is waived for CC students with demonstrated financial need. Other students, faculty, and staff get a discounted rate of $99 to ride up to 80 minutes every day for the entire academic year. For Mae Rohrbach, paraprofessional in the Office of Sustainability, the benefits of this partnership are threefold: It ensures that students, staff, and faculty have access to alternative transportation; it encourages the use of a more sustainable form of transportation that does not release carbon emissions; and it works with downtown Colorado Springs to make the city more walk- and bike-friendly.
