Local Colleges Start Bike Share Program
Community Care College (CCC), along with its branch campuses, Clary Sage College (CSC) and Oklahoma Technical College (OTC), are starting a bike share program named Green Fleet beginning this May to benefit both students and employees.
“Green Fleet is a great compliment to our current wellness initiative. I have had such great feedback from our employees and can’t wait to get the program started,” said Amanda Bringham, Assistant to CEO.
Students and employees at the Colleges will be able to check out the Green Fleet bikes for a week at a time to use for transportation, exercise and to travel from one campus to another. The program is to compliment the College’s current Corporate Wellness initiative (access to company gym, personal trainers and walking path around CSC). It is also an effort to become more environmentally conscious.
The bicycles are Worksmans Cycles, who is one of America’s oldest cycle manufacturers being established in 1898. The bicycles are made-in-American in their factory in Queens, New York. The Colleges are using the Classic Heavyweight Cruiser to be painted green and white in the Green Fleet program.
In addition to the bicycles, participants will also rent a basket, helmet and lock. The items will be checked in/out through each campus’ bookstore. CCC and CSC will each have 10 bicycles and OTC will have five to start out with.
