NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - A bikesharing service will make it easier to get around in the Cataract City later this year.
The City of Niagara Falls announced Tuesday that Reddy bikeshare will begin operating in the city.
Reddy Bikeshare partners with Independent Health and is operated by Shared Mobility, Inc.
Residents will be able to participate in the planning efforts for the program, including determining where bikeshare stations should be located.
GObike Niagara and Niagara Falls Community Development will lead the sessions.
Eligible Niagara Falls residents will also be able to receive discounted annual memberships for the program.
The program will allow riders from Buffalo and Niagara Falls to access bikes in either city with one membership.
According to a Tuesday press release from Reddy Bikeshare, since the program started in Buffalo in July 2016, 9,350 riders have traveled 116,345 miles and have burned 4.8 million calories.
