Students at the St. Paul campuses of the University of St. Thomas, Macalester College, Hamline and Concordia universities will soon have access to the Nice Ride bike rental system, now that the program is spreading from Minneapolis to St. Paul this summer, my old colleague Fred Melo at the Pioneer Press reports.
(Nice Ride also hopes to extend to the University of Minnesota’s St. Paul campus, possibly later this year.)
Concordia University rising senior Taylor Fieldsted told the paper she wants to rent the bikes to pick up groceries or visit friends on neighboring campuses.
“Say I want to get to Target. It’s not worth losing my parking spot, and gas is really expensive right now.”
