Bike Share

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska provided funding support for this project.

3C InitiativeAs one of the first bike share programs in our communities and at a rural community college, CCC is leading the way for an environmentally sustainable and healthy society. Building safe, healthy and alternative options for transportation benefits our health, wellness and environment – which benefits us all.

This is an important pilot program for the region and our communities. With the success of the CCC-Columbus and CCC-Grand Island bike share programs*, we look forward to expanding bike sharing and increasing the number of bikes and stations with potential community and business partners. 

Walkable and bicycle-friendly regions create healthier, safer and more equitable communities for our students and for us all.

So enjoy, and ride often! 

*Please note that this bike share pilot program is currently at the CCC-Columbus and CCC-Grand Island locations only.

What is the Bike Share?

The bike share consist of 10 bikes owned by the college that any CCC student or employee can check out at CCC-Columbus or CCC-Grand Island for free. The bikes will be available for checkout any day during the spring, summer and fall.

Grand Island Bike Fixit Station

The Grand Island bike fixit station is located on the trail between Stuhr Museum and Highway 281, halfway between Hall County Park and CCC-Grand Island. The fixit station includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. The tools are securely attached to the stand with stainless-steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments. There is also an air pump station with an air pressure gauge should your tires be running a little low on air.
