Bike sharing in Calgary

Implementing a public bike share system in Calgary’s Centre City is Action #11 of the 50 action items in the Council-approved Cycling Strategy. The goal of a bike share system is to provide Calgarians and visitors with a quick and convenient mobility option throughout the Centre City. Bike share will help make Calgary’s Centre City more bicycle friendly and deliver on the vision of the Calgary Transportation Plan

What is bike share?

Bike sharing provides a mobility option for trips too far to walk, but not long enough to justify waiting for transit or too costly to make by taxi or private vehicle. A bike share system consists of a network of bikes placed at key locations typically in the City Centre or other popular destinations. Residents or visitors to Calgary will be able to pay to access the system, after which they can use the system as many times as they wish during that period.
