BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A new bike sharing program has arrived in Buffalo.
Thursday, the City of Buffalo, Independent Health and Shared Mobility Inc. announced the launch of Reddy Bikeshare, a program that will bring 200 bicycles at 30 stations around the city.
Here's how it works: you can pay to rent a bike from one station and return it to another.
The bicycles will have features that can track, not only health benefits, but environmental benefits of biking.
They will track how many calories you are burning while peddling and the carbon dioxide, as well as gas costs, you are saving by biking.
Thursday evening, the bikes were ready to rent on Delaware Avenue near Chippewa Street.
For an hourly pass, the cost is $8.50 for activation and then six cents per minute.
An annual pass to use the bikes is $55, or 1 cents per minute.
A group pass costs $20 for up to four riders and six cents per minute.
