At the beginning of the year, it was announced that bike sharing would be making its way into the Downtown Las Vegas area. After months of planning and organizing, the wait is finally over. Beginning in October, bike sharing will be available in DTLV for all to enjoy.
How Does Bike Sharing Work?
In many major cities around the country, you have the option to rent out a bike to get around and then drop it off once you get to your destination. This offers a cheap and quick solution to traveling around many urban areas. When you arrive at the docking station, you can rent out a bike and travel around DTLV to wherever you need to go. Once you arrive, you simply place the bike in the designated station and can go about your day. You do not have to worry about locking up your bike or the risk of it being stolen. This offers a solution much similar to Uber and bus transportation but with more convenience.
