Heartland B-Cycle will expand next month, adding 34 new bike stations in 20 neighborhoods.  Mayor Jean Stothert and Heartland Bike Share Executive Director Ben Turner made the announcement today.

The new stations, which will be owned by the City, will be purchased using the unique application of federal transportation funds made available by the Nebraska Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration. The Nebraska Environmental Trust provided matching grant funds. Heartland Bike Share will operate the system for the City at no charge.

“Without Mayor Stothert’s personal support for this project, we never would have been able to deliver the bigger, better bike share system our city deserves,” said Turner.

We have a good and growing partnership with Heartland B-Cycle to increase the number of bikes, stations and riders,” said Mayor Stothert.The city strives to provide a reliable, safe, efficient and well-managed transportation system using a full range of options including bicycles, vehicles, pedestrians, and transit. Bike sharing is an important part of a vibrant, thriving, and healthy community.”

The new stations will be installed at these locations beginning November 6:
