Another Successful Year For Austin B-cycle x SXSW!

Austin’s bike share system surpasses previous overall use record from 2015. This year saw a nearly 50% increase in bike share usage compared to 2017 and set an overall system record for the festival at 23,526 trips! Here are some of the numbers we took pride in:

In terms of valets service, apart from the regular locations at the Convention Center, 2nd & Congress, and the Long Center, this year we partnered with SHOWTIME to open a new valet in the Rainey District. From now on, you can find more bikes and docks to use at the most popular bar street in Austin!


This year, Austin B-cycle moved bikes an additional 4,705 times to balance the system. We are so proud of all of our hardworking volunteers for handling the increased demand perfectly and making sure we had B-cycles where we needed them, when we needed them.

All told this was an extraordinary SXSW for Austin B-cycle. We want to thank again to all our staff and volunteers, our exclusive sponsor SHOWTIME, the festival organizers, the City of Austin, and especially to our riders from all over the world!

It’s been a blast. See y’all next year!
