ColumBike program to cease operations

The Columbus Park Foundation will cease operation of the ColumBike program.

Chip Orben, Columbus Park Foundation President, announced Thursday that the foundation will cease operation of the program on November 1st. “We tried several different business models to sustain the program and while we had many very loyal riders, it never reached enough rides and sponsors to allow it to be sustainable,” added Orben.

Foundation officials say that residents may continue to use ColumBike, for free, through October 31st.
