Previously, the Northside had only four stations located in Allegheny City Central, Allegheny West and two on the North Shore and just 46 bikes. The new stations will expand into the East Deutschtown, Historic Deutschtown, Manchester and Troy Hill neighborhoods. According to Healthy Ride, the North Shore Trail and Fort Duquesne Bridge station was the third-most popular station in the city behind the Sidney Street station in Southside Works and downtown’s Liberty Avenue and Stanwix Street station.
Cyclists can use the Healthy Ride stations by registering via the nextbike app. Once registered they will be able to rent and ride from any of the 700 stations located throughout the city.
An interactive map that easily identifies the locations of each station can be found on Healthy Ride’s website.
