Cowtown’s nonprofit bikeshare system, Fort Worth Bike Sharing, is partnering with Fidelity Investments Careers and its Westlake Regional Center to offer essential workers free six-month memberships, the city said in a news release.
Across the Fort Worth Bike Sharing system, there are 46 stations and 350 bicycles.

“We are thrilled to have Fidelity Careers sponsor and help implement this program to thank our essential workers who have kept Fort Worth rolling,” Fort Worth Bike Sharing Executive Director Jennifer Grissom said. “It is our privilege to provide an alternative transportation option that complies with the social distancing requirements while allowing a fun, active way to get to work. Our team is maintaining strict sanitizing practices in an effort to keep our essential workers safe and healthy.”
Through June 1, first responders, health care, hospitality or transit workers may apply for the free memberships.
