BCycle was awarded a contract by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) to install the city’s first bike share system. This will bring the total number of communities in the U.S. and South America with a BCycle system to 41.

“We’re excited to partner with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada and bring bike share to Las Vegas,” said BCycle President Bob Burns. “Las Vegas is the perfect city for bike share, and will further enhance transportation options for residents of Las Vegas and the world-class experience for millions of visitors to the city.”

The system is scheduled to open in 2016 with 18 stations and 180 bikes in the downtown Las Vegas area.



Las Vegas will be the third system to use BCycle’s 2.0 bikes and stations. The 2.0 next-generation station was launched in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in April 2015, and features an intuitive kiosk and an updated aesthetic look. The 2.0 bicycle, which is lighter than the first-generation bike, will debut in Philadelphia and Los Angeles, California, this year. The 2.0 system’s proven technology and high-quality aesthetic will complement the high ridership of both resident and tourist users expected in Las Vegas, according to the company.

BCycle currently has more than 900 stations and 8,000 bikes on the ground. All BCycle bikes are designed by Waterloo, Wis.-based Trek Bicycle Corp.

BCycle LLC is a U.S.-based company that designs, delivers and supports high-quality bike share equipment, software and services throughout North and South America. BCycle has the proven track record of establishing and supporting more bike share systems than any other equipment supplier in North America. BCycle is headquartered in Waterloo, Wis.
