Heartland B-cycle

Heartland B-cycle is a bike sharing service with about 70 stations in the Omaha area. Heartland B-cycle offers both manual and electric bikes (electric bikes have an electric motor that propels you forward as you pedal). This service is a particularly great resource for individuals who are active commuters, as it can be a great trip connector from the bus station to campus, or to other locations when you have a meeting during the day. 

In the month of April, Heartland B-cycle is offering free annual memberships to health care workers. Anyone with a UNMC, Nebraska Medicine, or Clarkson College email address is eligible.
