Salt Lake City Relaunches Expanded Bike-Share Program

Salt Lake City officials were so pleased with GREENbike’s performance last year that they decided to expand the non-profit bike-share program. Last year’s 8.5-month season generated 26,000 rides by 6,100 people using 65 bikes, according to Downtown Alliance.

GREENbike’s primary sponsor, SelectHealth, touted an estimated 3 million calories burned by GREENbike riders last year. “We all worry about health and well-being and fitness, and it’s programs like this and the walkable community that will help all of us,” said SelectHealth CEO Pat Richards.
