Since the launch of Omaha's bike share in 2011, users have taken over 111,300 trips. As we roll into a new decade, we have been reflecting on how the system has grown. 2019 was a pretty amazing year for Heartland B-cycle. Due to our late 2018 expansion and the implementation of electric pedal-assist bikes, ridership increased by 118% compared to 2018. Heartland B-cycle users took over 35,100 trips over the course of the year. When our system launched in June 2011, Omaha's bike share system had 5 stations in Aksarben Village and 35 bikes. In 2020, Heartland B-cycle now has 72 stations in two states with both classic and electric pedal-assist bikes in operation. Over the years, we have expanded to truly serve the Omaha Metro and see ourselves as a vital part of the Metro's public transportation network. We've grown and our prices had to adjust to this growth, which is why on January 1st our prices increased slightly to help cover our operational costs.
