MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -There’s a new way to get around Mobile starting Tuesday.
The Downtown Mobile Alliance and Regions Bank are joining forces to start a bicycle rental program.
You can rent one of ten bikes at the Urban Emporium Store at 260 Dauphin Street Monday through Saturday for $8.00 an hour.
Fred Renfrey with the Downtown Mobile Alliance said, “We worked with Regions to create this program in hopes that our users stay downtown longer and explore all the number of restaurants that we have downtown.”
Brian Willman, Alabama and Florida Panhandle Area President of Regions Bank said, “We think it fosters a healthy lifestyle, which is very important to us, as well as our customers and our employees. But more importantly, I think this gives alternatives for downtown transportation.”
The rates include a helmet, basket, and lock.
