Rental prices are being slashed in half for the new bicycle sharing program in downtown Las Vegas as part of a summertime promotion running from Independence Day weekend to Labor Day.
The program’s 24-hour bike share passes will be available for $4 beginning Saturday, down from $8, RTC spokeswoman Monika Bertaki said. The passes allow users to check out a bicycle for 30 minutes at a time for an unlimited number of trips per day.
Single-ride passes will not be available this summer and will be replaced with the 24-hour pass for the same price, Bertaki said.
The RTC opened 21 bicycle sharing rental stations in downtown Las Vegas last fall to reduce traffic and promote a healthier lifestyle. More than 1,000 bike rentals are logged each month, Bertaki said.
