About us

Blue Bikes

Blue Bikes is a new way to navigate New Orleans. It’s an affordable bikeshare program just for our city. These bikes are smart and sharp, with GPS tracking and built-in safety features—so you can roll with confidence on a bicycle built for you. Bringing bikeshare to our city expands transportation options for our residents and visitors at a low cost. Blue Bikes is integrated with our transit system and won’t cost the people of New Orleans any money to maintain. Building quality public transit is essential to building a city for the ages. Blue Bikes is a partnership between the City of New Orleans and Social Bicycles and is sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana.


Blue Bikes directly aligns with the mission of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana to improve the health and lives of Louisianans, and it’s a long-term investment in the health and wellness of New Orleanians. This program encourages healthy lifestyles and gives more people access to exercise in a way that’s environmentally friendly. It also gives residents of food desert areas a new way to get to farmers markets or full-service grocery stores, so they can buy fresh produce and other healthy options. Together, these factors over time can lower the total cost of care and benefit the community. Blue Cross and Blue Shield is proud to be the title sponsor of Blue Bikes.
