Heartland B-cycle is the Omaha metro area’s bike sharing system with 31 stations and 152 bikes throughout Omaha and Council Bluffs. Launched in June of 2011 as a program of Live Well Omaha, Heartland B-cycle has had over 24,000 trips taken since the start of the program. By making bikes available to the public, Heartland B-cycle helps increase physical activity, improve air quality, and decrease car dependence.
In 2014 through 2015, Heartland B-cycle expanded from 8 stations with 43 bikes to 31 stations with 152 bikes. Back to the River was the first of eleven funders to support this expansion which made Heartland B-cycle just the second multi-state bike share program in the nation.
