Cincinnati's bike sharing program, Red Bike, is open for business. People may now rent bikes at any of 30 stations located throughout downtown, Over-the-Rhine and Uptown.

Rather than renting a bike for an entire day, people who want to use a bicycle to get from place to place can check one out for an hour at a time.

Red Bike is part of the B-cycle network so memberships can be used in other cities with similar bike sharing programs.

Users can either set up yearly or daily memberships.

24-hour access passes are also available for $8 and includes rides up to 60 minutes. After 60 minutes an additional $4 fee is added for each extra 30 minutes up to a maximum daily charge of $50. Riders must check the bike in at any station to avoid the usage fees and can check out a bike as many times as they like during the 24-hour access period.

Just don't forget to turn the bike back in - an unreturned bike will run you $1,200.
