The zippy green bikes have grown in popularity over the past three years and they can be seen at all times of the day roaming the streets of downtown Dayton.
HOW LINK DAYTON BIKE SHARE WORKS
You can rent a Link bike from stations sprinkled around downtown Dayton. There are 24 stations and 225 bikes.

As a member, you can use your Link Bike for short trips. Trips that are too far to walk but too short to drive.
The bikes are made for all sizes and are easily adjustable and include baskets for storing belongings while riding.
HOW TO JOIN
Link is a membership based program. The 24-hour and monthly memberships can be purchased at the station kiosk with a credit card or online.

Annual and Semester Members can use their Link Cards to check out bikes right from the station dock. Annual and Semester Memberships can only be purchased online at linkdayton.org.
