Pittsburgh's public bike sharing system is growing, Healthy Ride announced on Tuesday.

The 2018 expansion will bring the total number of stations to 175 with 700 bikes. An interactive map showing the planned stations and opportunities to provide feedback are available on the Healthy Ride website.

New stations reach beyond existing stations into Highland Park, Homewood, Squirrel Hill South, and Upper Lawrenceville. Several new stations are also planned throughout the South Side Flats and along the South Shore. Stations across the North Side will quadruple.

Healthy Ride launched in May 2015 with 50 stations and 500 bicycles across 12 neighborhoods, including Downtown, the East End, Oakland, the North Side and the South Side.

According to data provided by Healthy Ride, the most popular stations include:

• Liberty Ave. and Stanwix Street (Downtown)

• South 27th Street and Sidney Street (Southside Works)

• North Shore Trail and Fort Duquesne Bridge (North Shore)

• Forbes Ave. and Market Square (Downtown)

• 21st Street and Penn Ave. (Strip District)

Since 2015, more than 64,000 registered users have joined, according to data provided by Healthy Ride.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
