DENVER — City officials hope they can get more Denver residents to ride bicycles around town by offering thousands of free passes to the B-cycle bikeshare system.
Denver Public Works, Mayor Michael Hancock and B-cycle announced Wednesday that 5,280 passes would be available free of charge to Denver residents this year. The passes are good for unlimited 60-minute rides throughout 2019.
Funding for the passes was included in Hancock’s 2019 budget.
The B-cycle passes are available on a first-come, first-served basis and Denver residents can claim a pass online here . Denver Public Works and B-cycle also are working with local agencies that serve low-income residents to make sure passes end up in the hands of people who need them.
Proof of Denver residency is required to obtain a pass.
B-cycle has 89 stations and more than 700 bikes around Denver. A number of membership options are available with annual passes typically costing $75 per year.
