AUSTIN, TX (BRAIN) — For the second year, Tern will provide a bike share service at the SXSW new media and music conferences in Austin, which are held March 8-17 this year.
This year Tern's bike share program is being sponsored by NBC’s Revolution TV show.
“Last year was a pretty amazing success with thousands of people making use of the bike share program," said Andrew McCalla, project manager at Tern. "It was pretty incredible to see the streets fill up with bikes at the end of a conference. We’re excited SXSW invited us back and asked us to expand the program, with a wider range of bikes and running through the music portion of the festival.”
The bike share program will provide registered conference attendees with bikes at no cost to them. The rental includes daily use of one of four Tern bike options. Bike rental also includes a light set, a U-style lock, and helmet. Tern also will staff a team of mobile mechanics to fix any mechanical problems.
Attendees can pre-register at SXcyclesBikeShare.com, or at the SXcycles headquarters located on Red River at the southwest corner with Cesar Chavez. The SXcycles lot will be in operation March 8-16 from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
