Bike Sharing Takes Off in Denver
Denver has launched the first large scale urban bike sharing program in the US! The B-Cycle program has 400 bikes at 40 stations throughout the city.
B-Cycle’s bikes will be placed at the B-Stations and “ambassadors” of B-Cycle will be on hand to help familiarize Denverites with the program and answer questions. There are 40 conveniently located B-Stations throughout the city, and anyone can pick a bike up, ride it and then return it to any station. Stations are located throughout downtown Denver, Capitol Hill, Cherry Creek and University of Denver, among other areas. By this summer, B-Cycle hopes to have 500 bikes and up to 50 stations.
Denver keeps the costs of the program down with sponsorships and grants so that riders only have to pay a small fee to use the bikes.
So rad! Go Denver! Heres to hoping that many more US cities will follow in their footsteps!
