E-Bike share taking shape during earth month

We have made significant (visible) progress in the past couple of weeks, pushing forward with assembling the hardware and wiring.

Keep an eye out on UT campus and fill in the volunteer form on the website ( if you are in the UT community and would like to be one of our early testers.
