Nice Ride now in 95 locations

Share   |  Posted Jul. 21, 2011 by Mitch Vars

Eight more Nice Ride stations were installed earlier this week bringing the total number in the Nice Ride network to 95. These new stations will provide service to new neighborhoods in Minneapolis and fill gaps in the network where demand is highest.

New stations are now available in the following locations:

  • Portland Ave. & Washington Ave.
  • 2nd Street N & Hennepin Ave.
  • 2nd Street N & 8th Ave. N
  • West 32nd Street & Bryant Ave. S
  • West 36th Street & Bryant Ave. S
  • Nicollet Ave. & Lake Street
  • Marshall Street NE & 8th Ave. NE
  • University Ave. NE & 12th Ave. NE

More stations are on the way. We expect to take delivery of additional equipment in early August. This equipment will allow us to continue our 2011 expansion to a total of 116 locations in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Where are the rest of the stations going this year? I'd love to see one at Folwell Park in North Minneapolis so I can take nice ride to work instead of driving.

Jeremy, I'd love to see Folwell Park too, but the Lowry&Penn Station is pretty close currently. Perhaps 44th and Penn?

Love the two new locations on Bryant Avenue and am hoping that some of the new stations continue into SW Mpls. It would be great if there were a few stations along Minnehaha Parkway so people could enjoy the parks system a bit more.

what about some stations right by the lakes toward the SLpark side. Also at or near some busy intersections, 6th and nicollet, Hennepin and Lake, etc..

These bikes are for a generation of people who are dependent on the government, sap wealth, and makes America poorer.

The additional locations on Bryant are great. I'd also like to see locations continue to expand south. A station at 34th or 36th and Hennepin would be perfect.

Love what you're doing! I'd also like to see a couple more in SW Minneapolis, south of the Bryant and 36th station. Perhaps one near Lake Harriet and one on Nicollet.

Nice to see them creeping into St. Paul. Would love to have a station at University and Dale -- maybe at the Rondo Outreach library? Would be a great investment in the Rondo community to have some stations here, especially as the light rail construction makes driving a bit challenging.
