Pittsburgh’s Healthy Ride bike-sharing program to expand

Pittsburgh’s Healthy Ride bike-sharing system has received a $200,000 state grant to expand the number of stations it operates by 50 percent.
The program, which began about 18 months ago, has 50 stations across the city where riders can rent bicycles at one location, ride to another and leave the bike there. It will use the money from the state’s Multimodal Transportation Fund to increase the number of stations to 75, said Erin Potts, marketing director of the nonprofit Pittsburgh Bike Share that runs the program.
