What is Link?
Link is downtown Dayton’s bike share system for short trips. People can pick up a bike at any station, ride it and return it to that same station or any other station when they’re done. Passes to the system can be purchased online or at any kiosk.
The system includes 27 stations throughout greater downtown, including the convention center, Oregon District, Dayton Art Institute, and RiverScape MetroPark (location of the Trails Rock Party).
How does it work?
Pass holders can use a personal credit card or Link card to unlock a bike in seconds. Returning a bike is even easier. Just roll it into a dock and walk away. The onboard trip computer allows people to track all the miles they ride, the calories they burn, and the carbon emissions they avoid.
How do I get started?
If you are not an attendee or want to get a pass for your spouse or children during your trip to Dayton, there are four different pass options to choose from, and each pass gives a rider an unlimited number of bike rides from station to station. As long as you keep all bike trips to 30-minutes or less, you only pay the cost of your pass. Visit linkdayton.org to learn more. Riders can see all stations and bike/dock availability on the free B-cycle Now smartphone app for iPhone and Android.
The Link Bikes are specially designed for both you and the city
Link bikes fit people of all sizes, thanks to an easy-to-use adjustable seat post. A great front and rear basket provides a space to stow your belongings while riding. Fenders, skirt guards and chain-guards help to keep your clothes clean during your ride. Automatic lights help keep you safe at all times of day. There are three speeds on the Link bike, perfect for your short commute.
