Bethlehem Launching Free Bike Share Modeled on Bike Pottstown/Bike Schuylkill

The City of Bethlehem has announced  a free bike bike share program to launch in July of 2016.


The Hudson Bike Share station is shown at the Hoboken transit station in this New Jersey Advance Media photo.

The program, which will go by the name Bike Bethlehem, and is modeled on the successful Bike Pottstown/Bike Schuylkill program, will be one of less than five free bike shares in the country. Users will be able to borrow adult bikes, children’s bikes, and trailers at Cutters Bike Shop in South Bethlehem along the South Bethlehem Greenway, as well as at the Bethlehem Area Public Library‘s north side branch, where they will also be provided with helmets, and maps of bike-safe routes, trails, including the South Bethlehem Greenway and the D&L Trail, and roads with marked bike lines.

The program, which was initiated and designed by the City of Bethlehem, AMC, the D&L TrailLehigh Valley Greenways, and the Coalition for Appropriate Transportation, is being supported with generous funding from Saint Luke’s.
