(Aurora, Ind.) – Technology upgrades will delay the introduction of the River Cities Bike Share Program.

The cities of Lawrenceburg and Aurora have partnered to bring the bike share to the Dearborn Trail for the first time this spring. Similar to the Red Bike program seen in larger cities, this local version will make 30 bikes available to people who make reservations using an app.

The River Cities Bike Share was to debut in early April. However, the launch date of the program is being delayed as upgrades made to the bikes’ Bluetooth chipset locks have delayed delivery, according to Aurora City Manager Guinevere Emery.

A grand reveal of the bike share program is now set for Saturday, April 29.

“The River Cities Bike Share Program is an exciting initiative highlighting downtown revitalization, neighborhood revitalization, tourism/outdoor recreation, riverfront development and quality of life and community connections for Dearborn County,” says Emery.

Individuals or organizations seeking more information or interested in sponsorship opportunities should contact Emery at (513) 505-7647 or gemery@aurora.in.us.
