INDIANAPOLIS — Nearly 300 new bicycles and over 20 new bike share stations across the city have been added for the Pacers Bikeshare program expansion.
The Indianapolis Cultural Trail Inc. announced and celebrated the significant expansion of Pacers Bikeshare on Tuesday.

"This is an exciting day for Indianapolis, as we become an increasingly more mobile and connected city," Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said. "The Pacers Bikeshare expansion provides greater bike share access to our citizens, specifically along our city's growing bicycle infrastructure. Pacers Bikeshare, combined with the newly opened Red Line, provide more and better access to affordable mobility options for our residents, improve quality of life and clearly illustrate Indianapolis is an innovative and forward-thinking city."
