“Our community continues to embrace Pacers Bikeshare; it is an integral part of the Indianapolis transportation eco-system as our residents have incorporated bike share into their daily habit, using it to get from point A to point B.” said Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. Executive Director, Kären Haley. “Pacers Bikeshare is also thoroughly used by visitors as riding Pacers Bikeshare on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail is the best way to experience our city.”

The majority of Pacers Bikeshare trips come from Indy residents and annual pass holders while people who purchase day passes typically take longer bike share trips.

Pacers Bikeshare’s EveryBody Rides program provides subsidized annual passes for residents who cannot afford the $80 annual pass. The EveryBody Rides program partners with social service organizations to connect eligible residents with Pacers Bikeshare and also provides bicycle safety and education and group ride experience as a way to make bike share more accessible.
