Nashville Deploys Public Bike Share

“Mayor Karl Dean, Metro Health Director Bill Paul and Tom Turner, CEO and president of the Nashville Downtown Partnership, demonstrated the program by checking out B-cycle bikes from an automated kiosk at the city’s Public Square, then rode to the Nashville Farmer’s Market and return the bikes to a kiosk there.

“Nashville B-cycle is one more way that we can make Nashville a more bike-friendly city and inspire people to embrace healthy, active living,” Dean said. “The strategically located kiosks will make getting around our urban core even easier and more convenient for workers, residents and visitors.”
