The Red Bike share program is crossing the river to become the first public bike share system in Kentucky.

Six new bike share stations are now open in Covington and will soon pop up in Newport in Bellevue.

The 30 bike stations in Cincinnati have exceeded expectations since launching last fall, according to a Red Bike spokesperson. Cincinnatians have taken more than 46,000 rides on what's being called the newest form of public transportation.

Riders can purchase a 24-hour day pass for $8 or an annual membership for $80. Each individual bike has a 60-minute limit and can be returned to any of the 50 stations across Cincinnati and NKY.
