Coming Soon: Bikeshare

Huckleberry Trail 1

Montgomery County, the towns of Christiansburg and Blacksburg, and Virginia Tech are teaming up for a bikeshare system that will start with 12 stations and 88 bikes distributed across those stations. roamNRV is scheduled to launch this summer and will include two bike stations in Christiansburg - one at the Recreation Center and one near New River Community College at the New River Mall. 

The bikeshare program will make it possible for individuals to rent a bike for a specific period of time and travel between two locations without having to return the bike from where it was originally rented. Memberships will be available, but riders will also have the option to rent by the hour.

Details are still being confirmed, but Gotcha will be providing the service, which will include a few electric-power-assist bikes alongside traditional bikes. Funding from the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation is supporting the program startup along with matching funds from the local participating partners.
