The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is launching a bike share pilot program this spring at its Denver Federal Center (DFC) Campus. The 623-acre campus houses 44 federal buildings located near downtown Denver. The 1-year bike share pilot program is just one of DFC’s ongoing efforts toward becoming the most sustainable campus in the U.S. by 2020.
DFC will be using B-cycle bikes and is currently working on plans to install six kiosk stations located throughout the campus at Buildings 20, 25, 67, 95, 810 and 41. The fleet of 50 bikes will be offered exclusively to the campus tenants free of charge for the duration of the pilot program.
GSA has been the leader in providing sustainable and healthy work environments, and has recently worked with Capital Bikeshare to increase the number of stations outside of federal buildings in the Washington D.C. area and Arlington. In 2010, GSA partnered with other Federal Agencies to provide federal workers with memberships to Capital Bikeshare in 2010 in response to the President’s Executive Order on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance.
