Fort Worth bicycle sharing program begins

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Wheeling around one North Texas city just got easier and it’s free for the first 30 minutes.

Fort Worth’s bicycle-sharing program is touted as healthy, affordable, efficient and reliable with 300 specially-designed bikes available to be checked out. Mayor Betsy Price helped kick off the project Monday.

Riders can purchase a membership online or at a kiosk as part of the environmental-friendly program. Usage fees apply with the second 30-minute period costing $1.50. Each additional 30 minutes is priced at $3.

A 24-hour pass costs $8. Monthly and annual passes are also available to use the 28 stations to pick up or drop off the red Trek touring bikes.
