Great Rides Fargo launches bike share program

2 / 2

Fargo, ND (WDAY/WDAZ TV) - Instead of driving from place to to place in Downtown Fargo, some are choosing to ride, and that's being made easier for everyone.

Today Great Rides Fargo launched their bike share program. There are 11 stations with over 100 bikes in the metro including some on NDSU's campus.

The bikes can be borrowed for 30 minutes at a time to encourage sharing. A day pass costs $6.

The program has been in the works for three years and is finally up and running.

Sara Watson Curry/Great Rides Fargo, "Healthy transportation has been a huge conversation in our community and so, I think this is going to open up people's eyes for a lot of options to hop on their bike on their lunch break or hop on their bike and head on down to the Y and work out there."

Passes are $15 a month and $75 for a year. NDSU students are able to sign up for free.
