Austin Parks Foundation is a founding partner of Austin’s B-cycle, the bike share program designed to transform the way people access the city’s urban core. With the help of ACL and Austin Parks Foundation, B-Cycle has allowed Austin to avoid over 65,000 car trips and offset 657,105 carbon emissions to date.
Without the generous support of ACL Music Festival, APF wouldn’t have been able to support such an awesome program. Since launching in December 2013, Austin B-cycle has been one of the best ways for locals and visitors alike to get around and enjoy Central Austin. But, B-cycle is more than transportation. The program immediately broke national records for check outs during SXSW—making it one of the most successful bike-sharing programs in the country. Not too shabby for a debut year, eh? Currently there are 50 B-cycle stations around downtown Austin, in all the places that you want to go! The best news? You can even take B-Cycle to ACL this weekend!
Because of ACL Music Festival, APF was able to help this revolutionary company off to a great start. Next time you visit Lady Bird Lake be sure to stop by the B-cycle stations on either side of the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge. Thanks to ACL you’ll see the APF hummingbird on those stations, and on plenty of B-cycles all over the city!
