You don't have to worry about parallel parking when you're biking around on two wheels!

Reddy Bikeshare is going into its third season in the Queen City and it has seen a lot of success. The program provides 200 bikes for rental around the city, from its southernmost station at Riverworks to as far northeast as the Grover Cleveland Golf Course.

For the month of May, National Bike Month, Reddy Bikeshare is offering a $1 monthly membership. Use the code 'GOBIKE18' to take advantage of this deal. 

There are dozens of stations across Buffalo already. For the 2018 season, Reddy Bikeshare and Independent Health are planning to add another one as demand for the program is growing. The program will expand into the University Heights Neighborhood, putting a 39th station at the Lasalle Station building.

Bikes are available for an $8.50 activation and then $3.60 per hour for a one-day or a week rider. Alternatively, there's a group pass option valid for 30 days that can accommodate up to four riders. The group pass is available for a $20 activation and the same hourly rate of $3.60. For riders who want to take advantage of a year-long pass, activation is $55 and rides are just 60 cents per hour.

You sign up on an app you download on your phone then reserve a bike. You can ride it around, make multiple stops and return it to any other Reddy BikeShare station.
