Bike Sharing Program Expanding In Spartanburg

Posted:

 

Updated: April 9, 2013

Students soon will have a new way to cruise.  B-cycle terminals are going up at two Spartanburg college campuses.

The terminals offer bike rentals around the community.  Currently, there are two terminals.  The two additional stations at Converse and Wofford colleges will be added in the near future.

Partners for Active Living tells us 2,000 people have used the biking stations since the summer of 2011.

Riders have made 4,000 trips on the rental bikes.

The program is going so well, organizers have decided to expand.

You can see how they work for yourself this Friday at 3 p.m. at the Morgan Square Bike Station.

The B-cycle program is making it easier for you to exercise, or simply get around the community. 

Spartanburg now has two bike rental stations up and running. The first is on the Mary Black Foundation Rail Trail, the other is at Morgan Square. You can pick up or drop off the red bikes, from either location. Organizers plan to expand and add more stations in time.

The first hours you rent a bike is free, after that, it's $1 for each 30 minutes, up to a maximum of $35 a day. You can save some money, by signing up for a membership.  There are three rental memberships available: 24 Hours, 30 Days and 1 Year. They cost $5, $15 and $30 respectively.

B-cycle is an initiative of Partners for Active Living and is a part of Bike Town Spartanburg.  This effort is a community-wide collaboration dedicated to sustaining and improving Spartanburg's national designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.
