The City of Miami Beach and their official operating partner DECOBIKE, LLC debuted their revolutionary public bicycle sharing and rental program in the world-famous South Beach Art Deco district as the country's first green city-wide public transit program, starting in March 2011. With nearly two years of organizing and planning already complete for this innovative program, Miami Beach has preempted other municipalities that are now just beginning to consider bike sharing as a viable public transit option.
"This isn't just an amenity as some may think. It's a full-scale, multimillion dollar, city-wide transit system. It's a green commuter program that gets you from point to point, replacing short trips normally made by car. It's fast, fun, easy and affordable. No hassles of maintenance, storage or theft for DECOBIKE members," says Miami Beach City Commissioner Michael Gongora.
The need for cars and taxis throughout the city is being eliminated throughout the City. A new green and fit lifestyle has captivated the City. "We have committed to making Miami Beach one of the greenest cities in America and we are very excited about the launch of the DECOBIKE program," says Matti Bower, Mayor of Miami Beach.
DECOBIKE, LLC is a Miami-based firm dedicated to providing and operating world-class public bike sharing program to forward-thinking cities and campuses. The initial deployment will consist of approximately 1,000 custom DECOBIKES and 100+ solar-powered, automated DECOSTATIONS. These stations offer easy-to-use, environmentally conscious transportation accessible throughout the City.
Based on public bike sharing trends globally, the program is expected to expand rapidly to satisfy the growing demand for a cleaner, healthier way for local commuters and visitors to enjoy the city in all of its glory. It is already live in Surfside, FL and Long Beach, NY as well. All you need is a membership or credit card to access and enjoy the benefits of the program.
DECOBIKE Miami Beach also offers a variety of sponsor assets to responsible corporations interested in making a difference and being a part of the "Green" movement. Corporate sponsorships, outdoor advertising opportunities, mobile apps, concerts and events are available as a part of the DECOBIKE program to gain unparalleled exposure and goodwill for your business.
