Pitt extends program to get more students, staff cycling

PITTSBURGH — The University of Pittsburgh is extending a program to get its college community cycling.

Getting access to a bike is now easier for Pitt students and staff, who can take free half-hour trips using Healthy Ride bikes that are spread across the campus.

The bikes are available now and through the school year. Users need to download the app and enter a code for the cost-free access, which is part of a partnership between Pitt and Pittsburgh Bike Share.

The free initiative launched last year for first-year students only, and is now extended to provide more people on campus with sustainable, active transportation.

“It’s a bigger campus, but it’s not that sprawled out. So, to cut down that traffic in the city and everything, make it safer for pedestrians and everyone, I’m all for it. I’m glad the university is doing it,” staff member Korey Blucas said.
