Mayor Jonathan Rothschild announced Tucson's new bike share program on Thursday.

Tucson will be joining more than 50 American cities that have a bike share program in place.

There will be just over 300 bikes available at 36 self-service, solar-powered stations in the downtown and University areas.

The public can buy daily, monthly or annual passes. 
 
The bike share program was approved by the Tucson City Council in June 2016.

Shift Transit, equipment and technology provided by PBSC Urban Solutions, has deployed more than 50,000 bikes in cities around the world including Chicago, Columbus, and Toronto.
