Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
