Bicycle/Pedestrian Programs

The City’s goal is to provide a safe, convenient, efficient, continuous, and aesthetically pleasing transportation environment that is conducive to cycling and walking. The City of Gainesville Bicycle/Pedestrian Program seeks to facilitate the use of these alternative modes of transportation by focusing on infrastructure enhancements, safety and outreach.Click here for a timeline history of the Bicycle/Pedestrian Program

Gainesville welcomes 2 new bike share stations to our town...
One station is located at the Rosa Parks Downtown RTS Station, 700 SE 3rd St, and provides a direct link to the City’s transit system.  It is also just across the street from the fantastic, newly-opened Depot Park (www.depotpark.org). The other station is at the corner of SW 3rd Ave and SW 13th St.  It is next to the CVS in Social 28, and conveniently situated right across from Tigert Hall and the University of Florida campus.

These two stations complement the existing two stations, which are located at Bo Diddley Plaza in the middle of downtown, and on SW 6th St just north of SW 2nd Ave.  Now with four stations in the system, it is convenient and easy to travel between downtown, the Innovation Square area, and UF campus.  You don’t have to fight for parking, and a bike is always there when you need one!  Annual passes are only $25.

Membership in the Go Gainesville bike share is open to all members of the public 18 years of age or older and riders must have a valid credit or debit card to participate. For more information or to register, please visit the “Go Gainesville” bike share website at: http://zagster.com/gainesville/
