CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Don't have a bike? Don't worry. The Red Bike share program launches in Cincinnati Monday in an effort to provide a greener form of transportation through downtown, Over-the-Rhine and uptown.

The bikes were installed last month in locations around the city including Fountain Square, Great American Ballpark and Horseshoe Casino.

A total of 35 stations with the capacity of 260 bikes are now spread out around Cincinnati.

Riders will be able to purchase a 24-hour day pass for $8 or an annual membership for $80. The day pass allows riders to use the Red Bikes for 24 hours but each individual bike has a 60-minute limit.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley became the first annual member of the program in Cincinnati, saying the program will "add to the urban vitality of the city."

Phase II of the bike share program in Northern Kentucky is slated to start in 2015.
