Dean launches downtown bicycle sharing program

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new bike share program in Nashville will provide bikes at several downtown kiosks for residents and visitors.

Mayor Karl Dean on Thursday will demonstrate the program by checking out a B-cycle bike from an automated kiosk at the city's Public Square, then ride to the Nashville Farmer's Market and return the bike to a kiosk there.

The B-cycle program is used in many other large cities, including Charlotte, Houston and Denver. Nashville's B-cycle includes 190 bikes at 20 kiosks within a three-mile radius of downtown. Riders can buy annual memberships, along with seven-day, 30-day or daily passes.
