NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — Reddy Bikeshare and Independent Health announce the installation of Reddy bikes in the City of Niagara Falls.

Thirty stations throughout the city will provide 145 "smart" bicycles with GPS capabilities.

The program began in Buffalo back in 2016, and over 13,000 riders have taken advantage of the bikes since.

The project aligns with Governor Cuomo's plan to provide an alternative transportation option. It also comes alongside the state-funded initiative of growing connectivity between Buffalo and Niagara Falls.

The first bike station will be installed near City Hall on September 13th. The rest will be installed in the following two weeks. Bikes will be available beginning September 27th.
