Barberton Bike Sharing begins!

by Ruth Kaser for Shop News

Barberton Bike Share opened on Friday on May 26th in coordination with National Bike Month. The bike share was made possible from a Barberton Community Foundation grant of $12,000. The project has been a collaboration of partners including the Ohio Erie Canalway Coalition as the coordinating organization, R&D Bike Shop to provide maintenance, Akron Children’s Hospital to provide the helmets, and Stark State College welding students designed and created the bike racks. Additional funding was secured through the Creating Communities Grant from Summit County Public Health.

The Barberton Bike Share will have three stations located at Lake Anna YMCA, Barberton Public Library and Stark State Barberton Campus, each equipped with four bikes, helmets and locks. Bicycles can be borrowed at no cost and must be returned by end of business day. A photo ID and filing of a waiver will be required to participate.
