The Upgrade Bike Share program, which launched at the beginning of October 2016, recently celebrated the 1,000th ride in the City of Evansville!
The program is fully funded by local sponsors including Deaconess Health System, St. Mary’s Health System, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana, City of Evansville Department of Metropolitan Development, Evansville Convention and Visitors Bureau, Welborn Baptist Foundation, and Meritain Health. Bike sharing improves community health, wellness, and mobility-all while reinforcing connectivity and fostering a sense of community.
Seventy cruiser bikes are available at seven stations across Evansville for members to use on demand. Anyone over the age of 18 can ride by purchasing a day pass or by enrolling in a monthly or annual membership. Rides for members are free for up to one hour, then three dollars per hour after that. Locations are as follows: University of Evansville campus, North Main Street, West Franklin Street, Downtown YMCA, Downtown Pagoda at the Evansville Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, Haynie’s Corner Arts District, and the Deaconess Sports Park on North Green River Road.
