In 2015, the City of McAllen introduced McAllen BCycle to the Rio Grande Valley as the first rent-a-bicycle program. As an initiative under Metro McAllen, this program provided supportive ways to explore their community, encouraging an active lifestyle, and provide an alternative option to public transportation.
