Milwaukee launches adaptive Bublr Bikes program

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee's bike share program known as Bublr Bikes, is expanding access to people of all abilities.

Tuesday marked the launch of the city's pilot adaptive bike program. A number of upright tricycles, hand-cycles, and two-person side-by-side bikes are now available.

In fact, Milwaukee is the first major U.S. city to offer them to people who ride the rental bikes. 

Leaders say it's another example of Milwaukee's commitment to inclusiveness.

"We have heard loud and clear from the Milwaukee community that our program needs to be fully integrated with our Bublr bike system," Mayor Tom Barrett said.

People at Tuesday's launch also got to see a demonstration on how to properly dock the bikes, as well as how to ride them.
