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.

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority helps run the program. A $1 million federal grant contributed to the project.
