“To Reddy Bikeshare Riders and the Buffalo Niagara Community: we hope you are all handling this challenging time as best you can and we want to let you know that we’ve been monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it continues to evolve and we have some updates and information for you.
Reddy Bikeshare is considered an essential service under Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s “New York on PAUSE” executive order. We believe that bikes are more important than ever right now as a form of essential transportation as well as a healthy and mindful distraction for everyone. We are taking every possible precaution available to us as bikes are rolling out this week. Below are some announcements regarding the Spring re-opening and precautions we are taking:
Our Fleet Team has increased bike cleaning and sanitation procedures on frequently touched surfaces and are also wearing gloves and facial covers as they clean and perform maintenance. We have reduced the number of bikes typically available in our fleet in order to more effectively manage the cleaning process.
We encourage riders to do their part to stay safe and healthy by providing personal cleaning and disinfecting measures before and after a ride. Follow Centers For Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.
We have hand sanitizers available courtesy of Independent Health. Each bike is equipped with hand sanitizer for use before and after your trip. Complimentary sanitizer will also be made available at certain stations while supplies last. Pictured here is our kiosk at the Amtrak Station in Niagara Falls.
Annual passes are now available for $1.00. We believe we need to unite as a community in order to support one another at this time, and we believe everyone should have access to safe and affordable transportation options. $1.00 annual passes will be available through the end of April.
We are actively looking for other ways to help our community, so please contact us for any delivery-related needs or for any other ideas you may have.
Stay safe, be well, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. Until we can all ride together again, let’s ride this out together. ❤️”
