What We Do

Heartland Bike Share makes bikes available to the public aimed at promoting health and quality of life as well as mitigating climate change through Heartland B-cycle, the Omaha Metro's bike sharing system.

Heartland B-cycle launched an Equity Program in 2019 to increase access to the bike share program to those who need it most. In this program we partner with local community-based organizations and provide free memberships to those they serve. We currently work with 8 local organizations and have distributed over 120 free memberships.

Despite COVID-19, Heartland B-cycle has been able to continue to provide bike share to the Omaha Metro thanks to our donors, like you. While our commuter trips are down, we are seeing more recreational trips this year as the community is looking for a safe way to get outside. We are proud to continue providing this service to our community.

Interesting Info

Our Equity Program riders have taken over 2,300 trips!
35% of the trips taken on our bikes replace a trip that would have caused pollution.
Over 85% of our Equity Program trips are taken by electric pedal-assist bike rather than classic bike
