NYC Bike-Share Program Adds Helmet Rentals

NEW YORK (AP) -

Riders who use New York City’s bike-sharing program can now rent a helmet too. Helmets can be rented at 10 locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. They can be rented in one location and dropped off at another. It costs $3 a day or $15 a week. The locations are near many Citi Bike stations.

The company says the helmets are sanitized after each use. It has more than 1,000 helmets and plans to get more if needed.
