In April, Houston’s B-Cycle program was expanded from its pilot phase, increasing from its previous offerings of three bike racks around Downtown to a new total of 21 racks from Montrose to the Museum District.

Through this bike-share program, member users may check out cruiser-style bikes as an alternative to vehicular transport, fulfilling transportation needs for inexpensive and relatively short trips around the city’s core. Bikes are free of charge for up to one hour and then cost $2 for each additional half hour. A membership fee is required for the program, ranging from $5 for a 24-hour pass to $65 for an annual membership.

Those interested in joining can sign up for a membership online or at any B-Cycle stations, a map of which can also be found online.
