City of Syracuse Launches Gotcha’s Syracuse Sync Bike Share Program.2019-07-08T14:21:54+00:00

After working closely with Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh, we’re proud to announce the launch of Gotcha’s Syracuse Sync bike share system in Syracuse, NY today. The state of New York’s first shared e-bike fleet, the system offers 200 e-bikes for immediate use at 35 hubs throughout the city and Syracuse University.

In collaboration with the City of Syracuse and Adapt CNY, Gotcha’s Syracuse Sync bike share system provides residents, visitors, and students with an affordable and accessible transportation option. Each bike offers electronic pedal-assist technology that’s perfect for hilly topography and Central New York’s year-round elements. The network of mobility hubs seamlessly connects users to the city’s existing bike lanes and Centro bus transfer stations.

“Bringing a bike share system to Syracuse is another example of our positive partnerships. We wouldn’t have Gotcha’s Syracuse Sync bike share without the support of Syracuse Common Council, help from Adapt CNY, Syracuse University, private sector partners, and because of Gotcha’s experience and commitment,” said Mayor Ben Walsh, City of Syracuse. “This program makes it easier for people to get around and see the City while reducing congestion and pollution—all while promoting active transportation.”

Like any of our systems, rider safety is a top priority. Excellus BlueCross BlueShield provides safety messaging on each Gotcha Syracuse Sync bike and encourages riders to wear a helmet.

Riders can easily find, unlock, and pick-up a bike via the Gotcha app, which is live in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Standard monthly and annual Mo-Pass subscriptions are available through the Gotcha app, or riders can “pay as you go.” With the support of The Allyn Family Foundation, a reduced rate is available for low-to-moderate income residents via the Kickstart Mo-Pass subscription.

“Gotcha is excited to partner with the City of Syracuse to launch the state’s first shared e-bike system,” said Sean Flood, CEO and founder of Gotcha. “We look forward to connecting the city and campus via a safe and sustainable micro-transit option that will help reduce the use of single-occupancy cars.”

To announce the launch of Gotcha’s Syracuse Sync bike share program, the City and Gotcha will host an event, led by Mayor Walsh, on Tuesday, July 9 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on Warren Street in front of the Marriott Syracuse Downtown during Rock the Block.

The event is open to the public and will include free e-bike rides, a ribbon cutting, a message from Mayor Walsh, and live music.
