Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. announced the 2015 results for their Indiana Pacers Bikeshare Program which saw an increase in Bikeshare trips in it’s second year of operation. Results from 2015 include 116,067 trips on the gold bikes and 240,112 miles, over nine times around the globe.
Pacers Bikeshare riders collectively burned more then 9.5 million calories by riding bikeshare bikes and offset almost 114 tons of carbon. The system also added one new bikeshare station this year at the OneAmerica Tower, bringing the total number of stations to twenty seven.
“The Pacers Bikeshare program is truly having a positive impact on our community and on individuals lives”, said Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. Executive Director, Kären Haley. “Like the Cultural Trail, the bikes are accessible year round and making it easy for anyone to use Pacers Bikeshare to explore and enjoy our downtown, travel to a meeting, or get exercise.”
Adam Shoemaker was the top rider in 2015 logging 1,287 miles on Pacers Bikeshare.
“I use Pacers Bikeshare to commute to work, run errands, go to Pacers and Fever games or just to ride for fun with my friends or my dog” said Adam Shoemaker, the annual member who topped the Pacers Bikeshare leaderboard last year. “Whenever I have friends or family visiting who don’t live downtown, I try to get them to use bikeshare and get out on the Cultural Trail. It really is the best way to see Indianapolis.”
The program also welcomes a new Bikeshare station sponsor in 2016. The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis is the station sponsor of the Athenaeum Bikeshare station.
