City of Camden, Get Healthy Camden, Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, and Rutgers University bikeshare, Camden, NJ, 2018
5 minutes Date Launched: May 1, 2018
The City of Camden, Ofo, Cooper’s Ferry Partnership (CFP), the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, and Get Healthy Camden have partnered to launch New Jersey’s first dockless bikeshare program, Camden Bike Share, with support from the William Penn Foundation. Through this program, dockless Ofo bikes are available for rent throughout the city. Bikes can be booked via the Ofo app, ridden anywhere within city limits, and locked anywhere at the trip’s end. The standard cost to ride is $1 per hour, though CFP is also offering subsidized rates for low-income users. This pilot serves as a bikeshare feasibility and demonstration program for the City of Camden and aims to offer locals an easy, affordable way to get around Camden.
