North Texas’ first bike share program launches in Fort Worth
Posted May 17, 2013
The newly launched Bike Sharing Program is opening up Fort Worth’s central city’s bike infrastructure to more residents and visitors.
The system is made up of 300 bicycles at 27 stations near popular attractions. Bikes are available for daily rental, and frequent users can purchase a membership to prepay for short hops under 30 minutes.
“It’s a great way for anyone to hop on a bike, get a little exercise and go see Fort Worth,” said District 9 Councilmember Joel Burns.
And with more cyclists out seeing Fort Worth, that could impact the bottom line for area businesses.
Research from Portland, Oregon, suggests cyclists are more likely to make repeat visits than those who drive, spending more money in the long run.
