In 2024, the Pacers Bikeshare program will add 250 electric bicycles



Indianapolis, Indiana – The Indiana Pacers and the city of Indianapolis announced a collaborative investment to develop and improve the Pacers Bikeshare program, in collaboration with the Herbert Simon Family Foundation.

Using $1.2 million in federal funding administered by the city’s Department of Public Works, the Indiana Pacers Bikeshare program intends to add 250 electronic bicycles by the spring of 2019.

“In nearly a decade of operation, the Pacers Bikeshare program has been a convenient way for residents and visitors to get where they need to go in town without the cost or carbon footprint associated with a private automobile,” Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said. “The addition of new e-bikes will add a whole new dimension of convenience to this mobility resource – one that just keeps getting bigger and better.”

By downloading the BCycle smartphone app, users can access 50 stations’ worth of Pacers Bikeshare bikes simply by strolling up to a kiosk or buying a yearly pass.

Pacers Bikeshare users have logged about 20,000,000 minutes of bike riding since the program’s 2014 launch—nearly 38 years of continuous riding.
