Bike share is an innovative and active mode of transportation that allows users to make station-to-station trips using publicly available bikes - kind of like a human-powered subway. It consists of a fleet of specially designed, sturdy and durable bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations throughout the service area. The bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any other station in the system, making bike share ideal for short, one-way trips. And you can take as many of those trips as you want - trips under 30 minutes incur no additional fees.
Bike share is ideal for short rides and one-way trips. People use bike share to commute to work or school, run errands, and get to appointments or social engagements. It can also be great for connecting to other modes of transportation – such as a COTA line or Car2Go. Some people also use bike share to get exercise or take recreational rides around the city.
