UTICA, N.Y. - Mohawk Valley Health System announced the launch of its sponsorship of the Pace Utica bike-sharing program in the city of Utica.
The bikes, which were initially launched by the city in 2017, provide residents and visitors with a convenient, affordable, and healthy way to travel throughout the city.
"We have 25 different bikes, five different stations throughout the city of Utica," Millie Condon, Marketing Manager for MVHS said. "Its a really important community health initiative to get people out moving when they're getting to and from places, its a great way to get exercise when you're trying to get to a place and we have such a great city to use bikes in, its such a great thing to use."
The five stations for Utica's bike share are at the Parkway Recreation Center, St. Luke's Campus, St. Elizabeth Campus, Proctor Park, and Downtown Utica at the corner of Columbia Street and Genesse Street.
Riders have several different rental options. They can pay $1 per 15 minutes, or choose a monthly plan for $10 or a yearly plan for $60.
College students 18 years or older and EBT recipients have the option to receive hall-off pricing.
