The JCU Green Bike Fleet – new love for unwanted bikes
JCU’s innovative Green Bike Fleet program gives new love to abandoned or unwanted bikes. The program has restored over 260 bikes, which are then sold to students. The program was designed around the four pillars of sustainability and the cost-neutral business model, allows the project to continue indefinitely. The popularity of the program has been outstanding, with initial targets exceeded by 260% and supply of bikes unable to keep up with demand.
1. Ensure you put plenty of time into planning and due diligence before starting the project.
2. Ensure key stakeholders are involved in the process from the outset and along the journey.
3. Talk to the students about what they want and let them take ownership wherever possible.
