When the Baltimore Bike Share program returns to the streets Sunday, stations will be located at nine locations downtown and around the waterfront.

About 50 bikes will be available at the following stations: Brown Advisory, BioPark, BGE at Center Plaza, Constellation at Harbor Point, McHenry Row, the Can Company, Harbor East, the Inner Harbor Visitors Center and the National Aquarium.

The relaunch represents about a quarter of the bike share's fleet. Remaining stations will be opened by the end of the month, city officials said. The $2.36 million program was shutdown for about a month this fall after widespread thefts and maintenance backups.

The refurbished bicycles have received upgraded GPS technology, paint, hardware and locks. Users may rent a bike for $2 for a 45-minute single trip or pay $15 for a monthly pass, which offers riders an unlimited number of trips for 30 days.

The program launched last year with 200 bicycles for rent at 20 stations, with plans to expand to 500 bicycles at 50 stations.
