    Nashville Now Has 29 B-stations and 263 Bright Red Bikes


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mayor Karl Dean, joined by Nashville Downtown Partnership and the national president of B-cycle, Bob Burns, celebrated the expansion of Nashville B-cycle today with a ribbon-cutting of a new B-station at the Shelby Bottoms Nature Center.
     
    “The Nashville B-cycle program is one of our greatest assets in building a biking culture in our city,” Mayor Dean said. “I am proud that we are adding more stations all across our city, especially in areas convenient for users looking to ride for recreation and exercise and those who make B-cycle part of their commute. I especially want to thank community partners who are sponsoring stations to make this innovative bike share initiative a successful public-private partnership.”
     
    150318_photo_bcycle 2Other new B-stations recently opened are located at Morgan Park; Belmont Boulevard, sponsored by Bongo Java; and the Hill Center Trailhead near the Richland Creek Greenway, sponsored by H.G. Hill Realty Co.
     
    Mayor Dean also announced that the next B-station to open will be located at First Tennessee Park in Sulphur Dell. It will open on April 17 to coincide with opening day for the Nashville Sounds at the new downtown ballpark.
     
    Nashville B-cycle is the city’s low-cost bike-sharing program with a total of 29 B-stations and 263 bright red bikes, including the four new B-stations celebrated today. The program was started by Mayor Dean in 2012 and is managed by Nashville Downtown Partnership.
     
    B-cycle is used in many other large cities, including Charlotte, Austin, Houston and Denver. Information about Nashville B-cycle, locations and fees is at www.nashville.bcycle.com.
     
    “We know that when bike share comes to a community it literally brings that community’s bicycle infrastructure to life,” B-cycle’s Burns said. “In city after city, bike share provides access to bicycle trails and other facilities in the community.”
     
    0318 B-cycle-008Since B-cycle launched in Nashville in 2012, 101,510 trips have been taken on B-cycles. That represents 263,753 miles and 435,597 pounds of carbon dioxide offset. It also represents 18,340,961 calories burned and 5,240 pounds lost, as well as 9,147 gallons of gasoline saved.
     
    “Since the launch in December 2012, Nashville B-cycle continues to grow,” said Tom Turner, president and CEO of Nashville Downtown Partnership. “The system has grown by half and there have been 101,510 rides for business and leisure travel. And now there are even more options to enjoy all of the benefits that Nashville B-cycle has to offer.”
     
    Nashville B-cycle kiosks located at Metro Parks are among the most popular in the city. The B-station located in Centennial Park continues to be the most-used location with 7,868 total checkouts in 2014. Riverfront Park was the second-most popular location with 3,344 checkouts last year. Nashville Farmers’ Market adjacent to Bicentennial Mall saw 2,859 checkouts and Walk of Fame Park had 2,689 checkouts in 2014.
     
    Although brand new, the Shelby Bottoms Nature Center location has proven to be a hit and was the second most-used B-station this past weekend.
     
    Riders can check out a B-cycle from one of the city’s 29 automated bike stations, ride to their destination and return the bike at any nearby station for an hour at a time. Individuals can purchase daily passes or memberships, including weekly, monthly and one-year options.
