TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - A new bike share program is coming to Tallahassee after getting approved by City Commissioners on Wednesday.

The City bike share program is a partnership between the The Gotcha Group and Florida State University and City officials.

"I am very excited to partner with Gotcha Group and FSU on this unique and innovative opportunity to invest in our community's quality of life," said Mayor Gillum.  "This city-wide bike share program is just another meaningful contribution to attracting and retaining the talent we need to continue the growth in economic vitality we are seeing all over our community."

The program will provide 100 bikes for free to city residents and visitors for a 24 hour period, according to the Mayor's office. If the bike isn't returned in 24 hours, a late fee may be charged.

The cost of the bikes will be covered by advertisements placed on the bicycles. The city will pay to install bike racks and signage.
