Austin B-cycle rebranded as MetroBike



- City Council and the Capital Metro board individually approved the new program earlier this summer, initiating a new partnership to integrate the bike-share system into the public transit system to create a synergy of increased ridership across both systems. As of this week, stations and bicycles across the city have been rebranded as MetroBike. --- “By being able to coordinate with the city and Cap Metro, we’re able to put stations exactly where they’re needed within the community, and that gives us a much bigger reach,” said Diego Martinez-Moncada, executive director of Bike Share of Austin, the nonprofit in charge of daily operations for MetroBike. --- In theory, the expansion and integration with transit will help the city decrease single-occupancy car trips down to about half of all commutes by offering a solution to the problem known as the first and last mile, which refers to the challenge of getting people to a transit stop or to their destination after they get off the bus or train.
