The Saint John Bike Share Program receives, repairs, and redistributes donated bicycles to give everyone in Saint John access to active transportation.
OUR GOAL: Everyone who wants a bike has a bike.
OUR MISSION: To further Active Transportation & Bicycle Culture in Saint John and to expand the Bike Share Program to all areas of Greater Saint John - especially priority areas.
Currently, the Bike Share Program offers the following activities:
NEW! Satellite location at the Carleton Community Centre Saint John West.
Want to donate? We accept gently used, rust-free bikes. Call CVRC (693-8513) to ask if your bike could be used in our program! Monetary donations are also accepted to purchase equipment, parts and helmets.
To apply for a bike: Come to CVRC between 9:00am and 4:00pm (Monday to Friday) and fill out an application form. Questions or require another way to apply? Call 693-8513.
