Across the Fort Worth Bike Sharing system, there are 46 stations and 350 bicycles.

Cowtown’s nonprofit bikeshare system, Fort Worth Bike Sharing, is partnering with Fidelity Investments Careers and its Westlake Regional Center to offer essential workers free six-month memberships.

“We are thrilled to have Fidelity Careers sponsor and help implement this program to thank our essential workers who have kept Fort Worth rolling,” Fort Worth Bike Sharing Executive Director Jennifer Grissom said. “It is our privilege to provide an alternative transportation option that complies with the social distancing requirements while allowing a fun, active way to get to work. Our team is maintaining strict sanitizing practices in an effort to keep our essential workers safe and healthy.”

Through June 1, first responders, health care, hospitality or transit workers may apply for the free memberships. Email Fort Worth Bike Sharing from a work email address with the business name in the subject line or call 817-348-0084 with details of employment.
