Gloucester Twp. Residents Can Now Borrow Bikes for FreeLast Edited:
Officials in Camden County introduced a new program that will make traveling in one community easier and greener.
On Thursday, May 24th, representatives with Gloucester Township, in partnership with Camden County and Cross County Connection TMA, officially introduced the GTWheels Sustainable Bike Library.
GTWheels is the fourth and largest local bike library in the county and will allow residents to borrow a repaired, donated or recovered bicycles at no cost to them.
Officials say the program will provide the area with a fun, healthy, free and green form of recreation and transportation, and hope it's success will encourage other communities to create their own programs.
"We're realizing how much importance in our younger generation is being put on alternative transportation uses such as bicycles," said Camden County Freeholder Bill Moen. "I think this is the next step or a good indication of where our generation is going in terms of transportation."
Residents will be able to borrow a refurbished bike from their municipal distribution center located at the Lakeland Complex, and then return it when they are done using it if they’d like.
