B-cycle is a bike sharing system in Omaha that launched on June 15, 2011. In an effort to help encourage physical activity on campus, UNO placed two solar powered B-cycle kiosks on campus - one on the south side of the Milo Bail Student Center and the other near the shuttle stop on 67th Street by Mammel Hall. The other three kiosks are located in Aksarben Village.
The system currently only has five kiosks but the program has plans to add more stations this year. Each bike features adjustable seats, front storage basket, automatic lights and three speed settings. Those interested in using B-cycle can purchase a 24-hour pass, 30-day membership or annual membership at a B-cycle station or by visiting omaha.biycle.com. Students are eligible for discounted prices by registering with their school email.
Riders can check out a B-cycle and ride it to any of the five stations in the UNO and Aksarben Village corridor. The bike does not have to be returned to the same station. For more information on B-cycle visit omaha.bicycle.com.
