Looking for a way to go that extra mile from the bus stop to your destination? Ever thought about leaving your car at home on those beautiful summer days and riding a bike to the park and ride to catch your bus? Whatever the reason, why not rent a bike for the summer!

SouthWest Transit is working with Freewheel Bikes to provide brand-new, state-of-the-art bikes.

  • BRAND NEW Electra Townies – rent for the season at 1/10th the cost of buying one!
  • Comfortable (and fun!) to ride – “Flat Foot” Technology allows you to place your feet flat on the ground AND have proper leg extension.
  • Full coverage fenders and front & rear racks.
  • Front & rear lights and Kryptonite lock.
