A $350,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation, as well as subsidies from UVa’s department of parking and transportation and membership fees, will fund the program.

UVa officials selected New York City-based startup Social Bicycles for the project. The bikes themselves will have systems to gather data on where and when the bicycles are being used, according to the report.
