Lyft suspends Nice Ride bike sharing in Minneapolis
March 2, 2023
Nice Ride's green bikes are pedaling into the Minneapolis sunset.
Lyft, which operates the bicycle- and scooter-sharing nonprofit, confirmed Wednesday that they're suspending operations in Minneapolis because they've been unable to recover after losing a major sponsor.
"We have made the tough decision to suspend our operations of the Nice Ride system at the completion of our one-year license after losing the system's presenting sponsor," Lyft, which pays operating costs, said in a statement. "Since losing the presenting sponsor, we have worked tirelessly to find a new sponsor but have not been successful. We will continue to work with our local partners to look for opportunities to provide service again in the future."
