“I absolutely see tourist travel increasing into the downtown and becoming explosive, a place of which millennials and even their parents can come and enjoy living, and being productive and having a phenomenal time.

Bike Share

Bike sharing makes it economical and convenient to use bikes for trips that are too far to walk but too short to drive. As a member, you can use a RTC bike to run an errand, grab lunch, travel from the bus stop to your office, or just get some fresh air. That's what makes bike sharing so great: a bike that's there when you need it and gone when you don't.
With your RTC bike, you don’t have to look for a parking space or bring your own bike with you everywhere you go. Plus, riding a bike is good for your health and for the environment. It’s the newest and best way to get around downtown.
The bikes are specially designed for both you and the city: they fit people of all sizes, thanks to an easy-to-use adjustable seat post. A great front basket provides a space to store your belongings while riding and automatic lights help keep you safe at all times of day. The bikes are equipped with three speeds, that are perfect for your short commute.
RTC Bike Share is designed to encourage you to use a a bike for all your short trips. Once you've paid your membership fee, you can take an unlimited number of rides for 30 minutes or less!
