CDPHP Cycle! Gearing Up for Season 4



The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) and CDPHP today announced that the 2020 season of CDPHP Cycle! will begin on June 22.

The onset of COVID-19 delayed the launch of CDPHP Cycle!, but with enhanced safety and sanitary precautions and guidance, and an increased demand for outdoor activities, CDTA and CDPHP will ease in to the 2020 season. Bikes will first launch in areas near parks and trails for recreational riding and will be spaced out at racks to allow for easy access and proper social distancing.

Cleaning and disinfecting measures will be ongoing, and each bike will be equipped with hand sanitizer for riders to use before and after riding.

CDPHP Cycle! is also strongly recommending that riders follow guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization to prevent the spread of disease.

“We’re looking forward to getting CDPHP Cycle! bikes back on the streets to give folks access to a physical and mental health outlet during these very difficult times,” said President and CEO of CDPHP, Dr. John D. Bennett. “The program has had an incredibly positive impact on our communities in the past, and we believe that with these updated safety guidelines, it will continue to do so.”

“CDPHP Cycle! has been a hit since it was first introduced, but we knew the program needed changes to keep it successful during COVID-19,” said CDTA CEO Carm Basile. “Our team has redesigned the operations plan, complete with a rigorous cleaning and disinfecting process and methods to make customers feel safe and secure when using bikes. With these updates, residents will be able to safely enjoy this service and bike throughout the Capital Region.”

More than 75,000 bike rides have been taken since CDPHP Cycle! was introduced in 2017. From the beginning, CDPHP Cycle! has been popular with thousands of Capital Region residents who have relied on the service during the warm weather months. Riders can purchase a membership or load a pay-as-you-go account by registering online or downloading the CDPHP Cycle! mobile app. You pay for what you ride, which comes out to just $.08 per minute with an hourly pass.
