Thursday, February 13th, 2014 at 2:49pm. 647 Views, 0 Comments.

 

Over the last two months you may have noticed a series of new bike stations that have popped up all over Austin’s urban core. Austin has officially joined the rank of US cities that have invested in this latest and greatest way commute. Austin’s bike share program is called B cycle. Here’s how it works:

1. You swipe your card: The first 30 minutes are FREE. After the first thirty minutes cyclists are charged $4/30 minutes. Cyclists also have the ability to purchase memberships, a daily membership costs $8, weekly $25 and annual is $80.
