The aim of the effort is to encourage visitors to rent a variety of bikes and promote a greener way to get around the city. The program also allows renters to rent in one park and drop the bicycle off in another, according to a news release. Participating parks include Justin Herman Plaza, Union Square, Marina Green, and two locations in Golden Gate Park.
“The launch of ParkWide Bike Rentals in our City will benefit San Francisco small businesses, our Recreation and Park Department and the millions of people who visit our parks every year,” Lee said. “San Francisco is truly a bike-friendly town, and our partnership with ParkWide helps create more opportunities for our citizens to get out, get active and see our world class parks.”
