Bike Share will launch in Seattle on October 13, 2014.

October 7, 2014

Bike sharing allows individuals to check out bicycles for short trips. It provides residents and visitors a healthy, fun and transportation option for getting around the city. Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan (BMP) aspires to encourage and accommodate more people to ride a bicycle.  Bike sharing advances these goals by improving access to bicycling opportunities with an easy way to access a bicycling for making short trips.

The local non-profit Pronto Cycle Share operates Seattle’s bike sharing system. Pronto’s cycle sharing system will launch with 500 bikes and 50 stations in Downtown, Capitol Hill, South Lake Union and the University District.  Individuals purchase a membership or pass to check out bicycles – these are offered at daily, 3-day, and yearly rates. The sturdy bicycles are designed for everyday trips, featuring seven speeds, comfortable seating, a chain guard, a basket, fenders, and built-in lights.

Visit the Pronto website to learn where bike share locations are located and how you can use bike sharing to get around Seattle.   For customer service questions about the Pronto system, call 1-844-4-PRONTO or
