Program Purpose:

The purpose of the Be Well Bike Sharing Program is to increase physical activity via active transportation. Employees may participate in the program for recreation (on their own time) and business purposes. The Mansfield Town Hall, where the bicycles are stored when not in use, is in close proximity to the various amenities of the Storrs Downtown area, the University of Connecticut, and several other sites in which the town of Mansfield and its employees conduct business. Additionally, the surrounding area is highly utilized for active transportation purposes like walking and bicycling. The bike program enables employees to utilize bicycling, a mode of active transportation, for recreation, to travel to business meetings, or for personal errands before, during, or after the work day.
