INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - It will soon be a lot easier to take a bike ride around downtown Kansas City.
The Kansas City Bicycle Project, a public bike sharing service, is setting up 12 bicycle docking stations around the city. They’ll hold 90 bikes and will be open for biking business on July 3.
“So if you work downtown and want to go to Crown Center for lunch, you don’t have to worry about fighting through parking and sitting in traffic,” said Bike Walk KC executive director Eric Rogers. “You can just hop on a bike and be at Crown Center in 15 minutes and pull right up to the front door without looking for a parking space.”
The system is all self-service, and you can rent a bike by swiping your credit card. Users can return the bike at any of the docking stations around the city.
