Accessing Equity in Bike Share

New ERI Riders

We can help!

The Everyone Rides Initiative provides subsidized access to bike share to individuals who identify that they are in financial need.  

Sign-up and Create an ERI Pedal Pass Account 

After you have signed up you will receive an email from Hamilton Bike Share to log into your account and create a password. You will also receive an email from the ERI which will contain the ERI Rider Toolkit and a link to a survey. Your account will be activated after these last steps are complete.

ERI Pedal Pass

With this pass you receive: 3 hours of ride time per day (double what other riders receive), and $25 ride credit applied to your account.  

You can use both your phone or a Blue ERI member card (RFID card) to sign out any bike. When you have completed your trip you must lock the bike up at any bike hub. You can also lock a bike up outside of a bike hub, this costs your account $1. You can also earn that charge back by returning a bike to a hub.
