The blue bikes of Atlanta’s Relay bike share program are now available in Buckhead. Representatives of the city of Atlanta, Livable Buckhead, and Relay joined other supporters to kick off bike sharing in Buckhead with a ribbon cutting ceremony recently at the Tower Place Park location. Relay stations are also located at Piedmont Center and the Lenox MARTA station.

Relay is a city-wide, public bike sharing program that began in late May 2016. An expansion in April 2017 brought the total number of bikes available to 500 at more than 50 stations across Atlanta. Relay offers multiple rental options with both pay-as-you-go and membership plans that are created and managed via an app on the user’s smartphone.

Cushman & Wakefield and Regent Partners played a vital role in expanding Relay to Buckhead by providing space on their properties at Piedmont Center and Tower Place Park for the bike share stations. Relay is managed by CycleHop, which oversees similar programs in other cities including Phoenix, Ariz., Orlando and Tampa, Fla. Georgia’s Own Credit Union is the presenting sponsor of Relay.
