Houston METRO to Launch Shared E-bike Programme

Houston METRO has announced plans to launch a shared e-bike programme from summer 2024.

This initiative aims to diversify mobility options by offering a sustainable solution for first- and last-mile connectivity in the city. The shared bikes will thus be integrated with existing modes of public transport to make Houston’s network more accessible, equitable and eco-friendly.

The bike share program is set to debut summer of 2024

METRO Board Chair Sanjay Ramabhadran said:

“We're excited to embark on a bike share initiative that will enhance connectivity to METRO's existing transit services and better serve the diverse needs of commuters within the region.”

The programme will introduce 140 e-bikes at 20 solar-ready stations near transit hubs in Houston, with the potential to expand to 100 stations in the long-term.

The payment service for these vehicles will be integrated into METRO’s existing ADA-compliant fare system. This unified platform will help promote the use of multimodal transport by offering greater convenience for riders.

METRO also states that the fares will be affordable to ensure its transit network is accessible to all and can act as an attractive alternative to the private car.
