Broward B-cycle

Broward County’s newest mode of public transportation, Broward B-cycle, rolled into action on December 14, 2012. This bike-sharing system allows people to check out a bicycle at a public bike station for a small fee and return it to another station when done.  Broward B-cycle is a new affordable and a convenient way of taking short trips around town or connecting to other transportation such as BCT.  It is also the latest healthy way of reducing traffic congestion, pollution and carbon emissions.

In it's first year, the Broward B-cycle system established 26 stations with 275 bicycles in six Broward County cities. Milestones of the first year include:

  • 24,190 trips taken by nearly 16,000 users
  • 3,443,408 calories burned
  • 4,464 gallons of fuel saved
  • 87,804 pounds of carbon (CO2) offset

Join the two-wheel revolution and sign up to receive an annual membership* pass. Visit the Broward B-cycle Website for more information and locations.
