ROAM NRV Gotcha Bikes

Roam NRV, operated by Gotcha and administered by Blacksburg Transit, will begin with 12 hubs and 75 bikes distributed across the towns, and university campus. The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation is supporting the program with start-up funding of $200,000, along with $50,000 in matching funds from the local participating partners. It is anticipated that ongoing operational costs will come from a combination of grant funds, local funds from the partners, bike share memberships, and sponsorships.
