University Hospitals to name Cleveland’s large scale BikeShare: UHBikes

Tuesday, May 17, 2016
CLEVELAND — University Hospitals has entered a new partnership with the city’s much anticipated BikeShare program, including the right to name the system UHBikes. The BikeShare program is a collaboration between UH and Cuyahoga County’s Department of Sustainability, the City of Cleveland, Bike Cleveland, University Circle, Inc., and vendor CycleHop-SoBi, and is scheduled to launch midsummer 2016.

“Our community’s health and well-being is a key priority for UH,” said Thomas F. Zenty III, Chief Executive Officer, University Hospitals. “This sponsorship was an important decision for us because the program accomplishes so much for Greater Cleveland—encouraging physical activity and environmental sustainability, while also creating a new way for visitors to see and discover the city that we know and love.”

“This program is the direct result of a successful public-private partnership. Cuyahoga County is thrilled to see it come to fruition, especially with support and engagement from organizations across the Greater Cleveland area,” said Mike Foley, Director of Sustainability, Cuyahoga County. “We are grateful to all of our partners, especially University Hospitals, for helping to make this a reality.”
