Started back in 1956, the League of American Bicyclists created National Bike Month to spread awareness of the benefits of biking as well as promote safer conditions for riders. Now celebrated from coast to coast, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and encourage more folks to give biking a try. This year, RTC Bike Share is bringing our riders exciting updates as we spin into National Bike Month.
New passes, who ‘dis? We have officially updated our pass options to offer you daily, monthly, and yearly pass options. That’s right, you can now purchase your RTC Bike Share pass annually. In addition, our monthly and annual pass options now have reduced fare opportunities for EBT cardholders made possible in part by our partnership with Southern Nevada Health District! We didn’t stop at the pass structure; we went for a full makeover and updated our pass names too!
New passes bring new purchase options. The RTC is the first transit agency in the United States to fully integrate its bike share and public transit systems into a single account and app experience. This new offering, available in the Transit app, enables riders to plan a multimodal trip, purchase a transit pass, and unlock a bike with just a few taps. Riders will still be able to purchase passes on the RTC Bike Share website or the BCycle App. Already using the Transit app? You can visit your closest RTC Bike Share station, open the app, and tap a bike share icon to get started.
