www.cycleushare.com, on the volunteer tab. The pilot will be open to a relatively small number of people who will use the system as we monitor the system performance and use. There will be a number of requirements, including consistent use of the system over several months--we want to users to highly utilize the system. The pilot test is open to all students, faculty, and staff; particularly those with easy access to the system. There will be two stations, one at Presidential Court and one on Ag Campus. There will be NO cost for users, but you will be required to go through an orientation, allow us to monitor your use, and participate in activities of the research project. We are nearing the full launch of the system, with a few programming tasks to finish. Sign up right away as slots are filling fast.
