Cincinnati's bike sharing program, Red Bike, is open for business. People may now rent bikes at any of 30 stations located throughout downtown, Over-the-Rhine and Uptown.

Rather than renting a bike for an entire day, people who want to use a bicycle to get from place to place can check one out for an hour at a time.

Red Bike is part of the B-cycle network so memberships can be used in other cities with similar bike sharing programs.

Users can either set up yearly or daily memberships.

After spending months analyzing the deal, Hamilton County Commissioners still have more questions about an offer to take over the former Mercy Mt. Airy hospital site.

Catholic Health Partners is offering to give the site to the county, which would turn part of the building into a new crime lab.

But before accepting, commissioners want a plan for funding renovations. County administration estimates it will cost $40 million to fit-out a new crime lab or $100 million to completely renovate the entire building.
