EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14/CBS4) — "Electric" is the new motorized ride people can travel on in downtown El Paso.
The new line, "Electric," of e-bikes were added to the front of the Plaza Theatre Thursday morning.
They came in just in time for the start of the Plaza Classic Film Festival.
The e-bikes were revealed with a red-carpet premiere.
Riders can use the SunCycle app to find the new e-bikes.
They will be in rotation at all 15 SunCycle bike share stations along with the red bikes already in place.
The new e-bicycle makes it easier for riders who want to enjoy the sights.
"If you don't want to pedal, you have an opportunity to ride in style," said Eric Pearson president of the El Paso Community Foundation.
The stations can be found between Downtown, Sunset Heights and the Cincinnati Entertainment District.
The film festival runs Aug. 1 to Aug. 11.
