Pittsburgh Mayor Announces 50-Station, Solar-Powered Bike Sharing Programme

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl recently announced plans for Pittsburgh’s first-ever bike share system. Pittsburgh Bike Share will include 500 bikes available for point-to-point trips to any of the 50 solar-powered stations planned throughout the City of Pittsburgh.

The system is intended to enhance mobility within the city, promote tourism and provide a fun and healthy way to visit Pittsburgh’s diverse and exciting neighbourhoods. Similar citywide systems have proven to be extremely successful in Washington, DC, Boston, Denver, Minneapolis and elsewhere.
