On December 14, Linus Bike responds to a GreenvilleOnline.com article describing Greenville’s new bike sharing program.
According to the article published on the GreenvilleOnline.com, Mayor Knox White announced that the city would have a new bike sharing program by next spring. Dubbed as Greenville B-Cycle, the program will include six transfer bike stations all over the city, including 28 bikes available for sharing, reports the article.
The article reports the stations will include software that can check bikes in and out, as well as the ability to track where bikes are at all times. According to the article those wishing to use the bikes will have to sign up with the city for memberships. The article states that daily memberships will cost around $5 and $15 for the whole week. In addition, yearly passes will be available for $60.
In the article, one of the program’s supporters and the Upstate Forever Executive Director, Brad Wyche, said the program could greatly benefit Greenville.
“Just think back 10 years when you didn’t see people walking and biking,” he states. “It’s a great thing cumulatively to have for Greenville’s health.”
Greenville B-Cycle isn’t the only bike-sharing program around. The article said the program is actually a branch of the Madison, Wis.-based B-Cycle headquarters. The Madison HQ already set up 17 other bike-lending programs across the country, explains GreenvilleOnline.com.
China Reevers, a representative of the city bike manufacturer Linus Bike, said, “A bike-lending program seems like a healthy way to get more people out of their cars and using their bodies. Biking is a great way to commute and explore the city.”
