BCycle partners with library system on Community Pass Program

A program to expand bike share access in Madison will utilize a partnership with the Madison Public Library Foundation to enable riders to use their library card to access one of over 300 electric bikes, according to an announcement from the city. The program began this week and aims to bring equitable access to its bike-share system. While e-bike checkouts from a BCycle station or mobile app typically require a credit card or smartphone to unlock, the Madison BCycle Community Pass Program introduces an alternative checkout method for riders that might have previously been unable to access bike share.
