Bike-Share Rolls Into Downtown Kansas City

A new bicycle rental program, called B-Cycle, is launching in Kansas City Tuesday. 

By midmorning, dozens of organizers and volunteers will be riding 90, newly assembled bikes into downtown, and placing them at recently installed stations around the area.  The new program is similar to ones that already exist in Washington D.C., Denver and other cities around the world. But how well will that translate to Kansas City?  KCUR sent reporter Elana Gordon out on a test ride to check it out.


Transcript soon to be posted.
