Houston B-Cycle: Bike-Sharing Program Comes to Downtown
Bikes for rent
Houston officials will launch next week the Houston version of a popular bike-sharing program.
Houston B-Cycle will have three spots and 18 bikes around downtown Houston.
Members who pay will be able to take any bike and bring it back to any of the three locations. Fees range from five bucks for a 24-hour pass to $50 for an annual membership. (Additional fees start to kick in if you keep the bike for more than 90 minutes at a time.)
The program already exists in 15 other cities nationwide, including San Antonio.
The stations will be located at City Hall, the George R. Brown Convention Center and Market Square Park. Bikes are available from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
