The City of Cincinnati, Green Umbrella, and Leadership Cincinnati Class 34 are pleased to announce the proposed launch of a bike share system for the Greater Cincinnati region in Spring, 2014. Bike share provides a low-cost mobility option for short urban trips through a network of bike rental stations placed throughout the city. Bikes can be rented and returned to any one of the fully automated stations in the network. The first phase of the program will include 210 bikes docked at 21 stations located in the Downtown and Over-the-Rhine areas of Cincinnati. Future expansions will include Uptown and Northern Kentucky.
At this time, Cincy Bike Share, Inc. is seeking a highly-motivated, goal-oriented candidate with a deep passion for economic vibrancy and sustainability, to become the first Executive Director of the Cincinnati region’s new bike share system. The Executive Director will be responsible for the overall success of the bike share program, including program implementation, ongoing operations, and future expansions. The Executive Director will be employed by the new nonprofit organization, Cincy Bike Share, Inc. (currently under fiscal sponsorship by Green Umbrella until it receives IRS approval) and advised by the Cincy Bike Share, Inc. Board of Directors as well as the City of Cincinnati.
While the bulk of operations will be “outsourced” to B-Cycle, LLC, the Executive Director will be responsible for strategic planning, fiscal oversight, leading fundraising and sponsorship activities, development and execution of a marketing plan. The Executive Director will work very closely with the B-cycle Program Manager to ensure timely and efficient implementation and operations of the bike share program. B-cycle’s primary responsibilities will include site selection of stations, permitting, procurement of bicycles and stations, station installation, pre-launch marketing and launch day planning, and ongoing operations (fleet management and maintenance, office management, etc.) ...Continue to Job Posting here.
