Hello Tufts! In some recent weeks, we’ve gotten a few e-mails asking about the status of the bike share opening. Unfortunately, we cannot re-open until later this semester due to variant weather (coldness or the possibility of snow /ice) and our bikes needing necessary repairs. We recognize that on days like today, when the weather is incredibly nice, it would be convenient to have the share open. Unfortunately, since the logistics of opening the bike share as a “one-day only” or through temporary opening is incredibly difficult to carry out between our group, the library, and the University, we cannot do such a thing. Additionally, since the University is ultimately liable for any injuries that a student incurs on one of our bikes, they have asked that we keep the bike share closed until weather remains consistently nice in the spring.
Our eventual opening will likely occur sometime in late February / March. As always, we will keep you updated on the status of this re-opening.
Thanks again Tufts, and enjoy the rest of your winter!
