PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - Heartland B-cycle has expanded its bike sharing into Sarpy County.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2r1UhA2 ) that B-cycle stations have been installed in downtown Papillion (puh-PIHL’-yuhn) and at the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District headquarters.

The kiosks and bicycles are owned by the city of Papillion and the resources district. Papillion paid $27,000 for six bikes and a nine-stall kiosk. The district paid $33,000 for eight bikes and an 11-stall kiosk. Heartland B-cycle takes care of maintenance.

B-cycle lets people rent bikes and ride them for as long as they like. The bikes can be returned to any B-cycle kiosk.

Papillion spokesman Trenton Albers said B-cycle is “another way of encouraging our residents to be active.”

Most of the system stations are in downtown Omaha, which is in adjacent Douglas County.
