Dayton's own bike share program keeps getting better and better.

NEW STATIONS

Link celebrated the installation of three new stations to its existing network: RTA’s Longworth Campus, the Montgomery County Job Center and Tech Town.

Greater Dayton RTA installed their station at their Longworth Campus in mid-April.

The two additional stations were added this August.

Commissioner Debbie Lieberman express her excitement for the station at the Montgomery County Job Center. “For the County, it was about providing access to our employees and users of the Job Center. With access to the Nation’s Largest Paved Trail Network right across the street, it was a no-brainer that Link should be one of the enhancements to the new facility,” she said in a news release.

NEW MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP OPTION

Perhaps most exciting, Link DYT Executive Director Laura Estandia announced that Link recently launched a $10 Monthly Membership aimed at those users who may prefer to pay for a membership on a monthly basis. “It’s a great low cost way for those considering an Annual Membership to try the system to see if it’s for them,” Estandia said in the news release. “We believe it will open up doors for new customers.”

Link also will simplify its pricing structure with a flat rate of $3 per half hour for trips over 30 minutes in length.
