Red Bike Lands New Sponsor: Newport's Aqua on the Levee

Red Bike has landed a new sponsor partnership.

The Cincinnati-based bike sharing program that expanded into Covington, Newport, and Bellevue last summer, announced Tuesday that Aqua on the Levee will sponsor five Red Bike stations that will be wrapped in the development's logo. The stations are at Fountain Square, 12th & Vine Streets, two on Broadway at 5th and 8th Streets, and the station across from the Banks on 2nd Street.

Aqua on the Levee is the new mixed-use residential and commercial development to the east of Newport on the Levee.

“We are excited to be a sponsor of Red Bike. Aqua On The Levee is a premier new residential space in the urban core that will provide residents a luxury living environment that is nearby all of the activity on both sides of the riverfront," said David Bastos, president of Capital Investment Group, the developer of Aqua that was instrumental in bringing the bike-sharing program to Newport. "Red Bike is creating those connections. Hop on a bike and you are minutes from fun destinations throughout Northern Kentucky, Downtown, and Over-the-Rhine.”

Aqua On The Levee has 239 contemporary apartments with 1, 2, and 3 bedroom options, featuring premium appliances and luxury finishes. Located next to Newport on the Levee, Aqua On The Levee will have stunning views of the Cincinnati skyline.  It is also located steps away from the Red Bike station at Newport on the Levee. 

“Aqua On The Levee is a great new partner for Red Bike, and the project is an exciting new residential option on the riverfront. Red Bike will allow the folks who live at Aqua On The Levee to access the entire Downtown area without ever having to get into a car,” said Red Bike Executive Director Jason Barron. “As a non-profit, Red Bike’s generous sponsors are the key to providing the highest quality public transportation option, while keeping membership rates as low as possible.”

Red Bike now has 56 stations across the urban core.
