SALT LAKE CITY, UT (June 23, 2018) — GREENbike, Salt Lake City’s non-profit bike share has surpassed 500,000 rides. Those rides have prevented 3.4 million pounds of CO2 from entering the air, removed 3.8 million vehicle miles from local roads, while burning 55 million calories in the process. To celebrate this milestone, GREENbike and its title sponsor SelectHealth are offering free rides to the public on Saturday, June 23. This Saturday, go to any GREENbike station, purchase a 24-hour pass using the promo code “2018” and ride for free!

“It’s been so exciting to see every bike used every day. And none of this would’ve been possible without the support of SelectHealth.” said GREENbike executive director, Ben Bolte. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate half a million rides than to get some new riders. So this Saturday, folks familiar or unfamiliar with the program can ride for free!”

GREENbike attributes its high ridership to their annual users. GREENbike’s annual users receive an RFID card that allows them unlimited 1-hour rides for 365 days. They utilize the system to connect from downtown rail stops and apartments to major employment centers and commerce destinations. Nearly 70% of all GREENbike’s rides are taken by their annual users that utilize GREENbike during commuter hours.

“GREENbike is a fun and versatile way to exercise and enjoy our great city,” said SelectHealth Public Relations Manager, Greg Reid. “It complements our mission of helping people live the healthiest life possible”
