RCB will match donations to Rochester Bike Share!

This spring, the City of Rochester will begin the first phase of a bike share program, operated by industry veteran Zagster and funded entirely by corporate sponsorships and private donations.

Reconnect Rochester has launched a fundraising campaign to bring bike-share stations to an area of the city that is unlikely to draw corporate sponsors (the bright green area on the map to the left; click on the map to enlarge).

RCB has pledged to match donations to Reconnect Rochester’s campaign, dollar-for-dollar, up to $4,500. Please consider donating generously to benefit an area of the city greatly in need. $4.500 in donations, matched by a like amount from RCB, will be enough to fund one $9,000 station.

To make a donation, follow this link and click on the big orange “Donate” button. To activate RCB’s match, be sure to select “R COMMUNITY BIKES!!!” under the “Select a Team” dropdown menu on the next page (see image below). Select either Dan Lill or Brent Williams on the “Select a Team Member” dropdown.
