Albuquerque’s bike share program expands

News

The city’s bike share program rolled out its next generation of bikes Thursday.

The Pace Program run by the Rio-Metro will now provide 250 bikes for Albuquerque residents.

Pace says the new bikes have technology upgrades that make them more convenient and safe. 

“One of the major upgrades is that the new technology has a lock that goes through the rear wheel and this lock connects to the Bluetooth on your phone,” said Travis Reik from Pace. 

The Bluetooth connection means you can just scan the bike to unlock it. 

New bikes also have cables that allow them to be locked anywhere instead of just Pace bike racks.
