October 2, 2017 - Communities In Schools of Pennsylvania (CISPA), title sponsor Highmark Blue Shield, and valuable partners will kick-off the official launch of the Harrisburg Bike Share on Thursday, October 5th at 11 AM in Strawberry Square.
One of the largest city bike shares in the state of Pennsylvania, next to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, the Harrisburg Bike Share will directly benefit local youth. 93% of the revenue generated by the program will support services offered by CIPSA, the Commonwealth’s largest dropout prevention organization, serving nearly 50,000 students and their families.
Following the press conference, invited guests will take part in the Harrisburg Bike Share ceremonial ribbon cutting and inaugural bike ride using Harrisburg Bike Share bicycles. The Inaugural riders will include Representative Patty Kim, Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico, and other active members of our community.
