Reddy Bikeshare will grow by 222% in 2020


0

In 2020, Reddy Bikeshar increased by 222% compared to the previous year. In addition to this huge growth in cycling, Reddy Bike also reports that 578 critical workers have signed up for a trip for $ 1 a year – these workers are mostly in the healthcare sector or in the service / delivery sector.

Through a survey, Reddy Bike found that 56.5% of people surveyed did not own a bike and 20.6% did not own a car.

Also in 2020, Reddy Bike added 40 bikes to its fleet, including 11 new Buffalo stations, including a new station in the Ken Bailey neighborhood at the Warsaw Theater.

“We are proud to have supported the Buffalo-Niagara community when it needed more bikes,” said Jennifer White, co-founder and communications director, Reddy Bikeshar. “The record increase means a transition to a healthier, more active and accessible region.”

Another development that Reddy Bike (in partnership with Independent Healthcare) is experiencing is its presence in Falls Falls. The first successful year of 2020 meant a doubling of the organization’s footing in WNY.

“As an aspiring cyclist, I am proud that the residents of Niagara Falls are enjoying and taking advantage of the opportunity that Reddy Bikeshar offers,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restayno. “We look forward to warmer weather and another successful year where residents and visitors can enjoy the transportation that Reddy offers within the city.”

“Reddy Bikeshare’s success is profound and its positive impact is inspiring to support key employees and expand access to better services to diverse communities, especially in eastern and western Buffalo and Niagara Falls,” said Michael W. Kropp, MD, president and CEO, Independent Healthcare. “Our bikeshare program is an important part of our efforts to create opportunities for all residents of Western New York that provide a fair and equal opportunity to promote a healthy lifestyle. We are proud to work in partnership with Reddy Bikeshare to ensure that more residents enjoy all the health benefits and convenience of cycling. ”

In 2021, Reddy Bike will return 400 bikes through 90 stops in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Once again, this means that there is a call for cycling favorite streets to ensure the safety of all cyclists. This shared service means more cyclists hit the streets, most of them who are not accustomed to cycling around town. Until the Complete Streets initiative loses some of its favorable bike infrastructure, we will have to walk a safe route to make the bike safe in Buffalo. Let’s hope the city understands how important it is to connect all the bike properties that are so separate from each other at this point.
