May is Bike Month and RTC Bike Share gives everyone reasons to celebrate.

In honor of National Bike Month, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is encouraging residents and visitors to celebrate with half-off pricing on all RTC Bike Share passes.

Throughout the month of May, RTC Bike Share single-ride passes will be available for $2 (regularly $4), 24-hour passes for $4 (regularly $8) and 30-day memberships for $10 (regularly $20). All 30-day members who sign up for auto-renewal online will also receive half-off their monthly membership for the rest of the year.

National Bike Month is an opportunity to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and encourage more community members to try riding a bike, if they don’t use it as a regular means of transportation. RTC Bike Share is a great way to try cycling, without having to purchase any equipment; thus, helping the environment and wallet.

With growing awareness around its health and wellness benefits, sustainability and economic savings, bicycling can be seen as a simple solution to increasing mobility options for the valley. The RTC encourages the use of various transportation modes that help reduce the valley’s traffic congestion and improve air quality, and the bike share program aims to do exactly that with 180 bikes and 21 stations conveniently located throughout downtown Las Vegas.
