B-cycle goes to school

Friday, February 16, 2018 by Caleb Pritchard

Austin B-cycle is making it easier for UT students to bike between classes. The city-backed bike-sharing nonprofit cut the ribbon on five new stations inside the Forty Acres on Wednesday. Another four stations also opened in West Campus. The expansion brings B-cycle’s local inventory up to 63 stations and 520 bikes. In addition to the new stations, B-cycle also struck a deal with UT that allows current students to ride for free. University staff is also eligible for a 50 percent discount on annual B-cycle memberships. B-cycle Executive Director Elliott McFadden told the Austin Monitor, “We’re excited for this new mobility option for students, and we think it’s going to be a big success.”
