Atlanta Introduces Relay Bike Share System
Let’s talk about bike share. Miami based bike share company, Cyclehop, has just rolled into Atlanta with its newest bike share, Relay. Relay is taking city exploration to a healthy, new level. Come June 9th, there will be 100 bikes and 10 stations on the ground introducing a safe, affordable and enjoyable way to get around. This will be a pilot, a demonstration of dense hubs put in place before the system grows to fulfill its contractual 500 bikes and 50 stations. Are you ready to try bike share and be a part of our community? Visit relaybikeshare.com for membership information. Together we can change the way Atlantans move altogether by making pedaling from place to place the new norm! Ride a bike. Pass it on. Relay.

We want to hear from you!
In collaboration with the Atlanta Bike Coalition, a text based survey has been released to collect public feedback and find out why YOU ride a bike! This survey is also intended to place stations in Atlanta communities where citizens think they will be most utilized. Text the NEIGHBORHOOD you want to see bike share in to 678-647-7176!
We also invite the corporate community to help support this innovative and environmentally friendly transportation alternative. There are multiple advertising and sponsorship options available with the system, including the bikes, station locations, and the Relay website.
Cyclehop is a professional service organization focused on planning, launching and operating world-class bike share programs. We work with system owners and cities to build reliable products, deliver efficient operations, and provide a great experience for all. Atlanta is Cyclehop’s 10th bike share city and they are going strong. The city of Atlanta looks forward to the 500+ bikes that will be on the ground come 2017.
