It may not be news, but riding a bike is a great way to be active and live a healthier lifestyle.

Bike share can also reduce congestion and pollution by helping people make shorter trips by bike. In fact, studies from other US cities shows bike share has reduced their traffic congestion and parking demand.

Studies also show that having a bike share station nearby increases spending and economic activity at nearby stores.
