Omaha B-cycle, a bike sharing program, today announced its “B-connected” annual membership expansion to 14 of its fellow B-cycle systems.

Starting Friday, March 22nd, annual members traveling to specified B-cycle systems across the U.S. can use their annual membership to check out bikes in any of the participating cities just as they do in Omaha.

“Business travelers and those on a vacation will really enjoy having a B-cycle at their destination,” said Ben Turner, Omaha B-cycle program director. “Our annual members can experience visiting cities by bike versus by car – and there’s no better way to explore a city than by bicycle

“Between all of the cultural and entertainment opportunities in Omaha, tourism is thriving in our city,” said Turner. “We believe having a strong and successful bike sharing program will add another reason for visitors to discover Omaha.”

Live Well Omaha, with the support of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska, launched Omaha B-cycle in 2011.

The system is currently operating at kiosks in Aksarben Village and at UNO’s campus. “We are currently meeting with local corporations as we work to expand our presence throughout the city,” explained Turner.

To celebrate the B-connected program, B-cycle annual memberships are discounted by $15, making the price $40.
