TULSA -- Tulsa Bike Share features 160 high tech bicycles with 25 stations mainly downtown, and creators of the program say this will transform the way people travel in Tulsa.
The smart bike system has a solar powered LED screen built into the bike. It tracks how many miles you travel, the number of calories you burn, and the cost of your ride.
Prices start at $2 for 30 minutes, a 72 hour pass is $10, monthly pass costs $20, and it's $100 for an annual pass.
Members of Tulsa Bike Share say the public bike system will take away the worry of having to maintain your own personal bike.
The bikes come equipped with a GPS system so they don't get misplaced around the city.
"We’ll fully take care of the bikes ourselves so we’ll provide maintenance on them and they are GPS enabled so we actually track the bikes and maintain their location as well," said Daniel Sperle, Executive Director of Tulsa Bike Share.
The program will use the app, BCycle, for users to pay for rides and track their miles.
There will be 19 bike stations downtown, and 6 along 11th Street. Organizers are looking to expand station locations to Cherry Street, The Gathering Place, and Midtown Tulsa.
Organizers announced during Tulsa Tough their partnership with Saint Francis Health System, and the William K. Warren Foundation.
Tulsa Bike Share launches next month on July 27th.
