February marks the beginning of Year 3 for Zyp Bikeshare‘s Access For All program. The program provides reduced-price annual memberships for low-income users and individuals on government assistance.
Through this program, transit dependent users cut upwards to two hours on their daily commute by using bikeshare.
In addition to unlimited access to Zyp’s system (all rides up to 45 minutes), Access For All members also receive a free helmet upon registration. Registration can be completed over the phone or in person. Zyp will also work with individuals who do not have access to a credit or debit card by offering cash payments.
Local individuals and organizations can sponsor an Access For All member by covering the initial $15 fee. A liability waiver must be signed by the receiving Access For All member.
Bikeshare can be a valuable mobility option in Birmingham, especially for those who are dependent upon public transportation. Zyp wants to ensure this “grab and go” transit option is accessible to everyone who would benefit from it.

This fall, the REV team is doing some new REV things, with a demonstration project designed to prove and improve downtown Birmingham’s market for more retail.
I believe that Birmingham is still missing something important—something that inspires people to experience downtown on foot, that can tell the story of our city and its cultures.
