• Pittsburgh bike share program taking off after seven months of service


    PITTSBURGH - As Pittsburgh continues to develop, so is the way Pittsburghers are getting around town.

    The city’s newest form of public transportation, the Healthy Ride bike share program, has been well-received in the Steel City since its May 31 launch.


    “This year has been really exciting,” said David White, executive director of Healthy Ride. “We brought a new product to Pittsburgh that’s a relatively new concept in our industry.”

    Halfway through its first full calendar year, Healthy Ride released its participation numbers through the third quarter.

    During the quarter, the program has seen 40,084 riders and now has more than 22,000 registered users.

    “We’re excited that Pittsburgh residents, students and visitors have embraced the system,” White said.
