DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Managers of downtown Dayton’s new bike-share program say it’s exceeded their expectations since it launched earlier this month.

John Hoff of the Greater Dayton Regional Transportation Authority tells the Dayton Daily News (https://bit.ly/1HmS2G4 ) that hundreds have signed up for the Bike Share Link program.

Bike-share programs can be found in many major cities and are continuing to grow around the country.

Link has 24 stations and more than 200 bikes in Dayton. Riders must charge a credit card and give a phone number. They can buy a 24-hour pass for $5 at kiosks. Annual and monthly memberships are available online.

Managers say at least 1,500 trips had been taken as of Friday. They expect that number to increase when University of Dayton students return for the fall.
