On Friday, Car-Free Day Long Island, people are embracing the perfect weather outside and hopping on their bikes.

Suffolk County is looking to expand Stony Brook University’s successful bike-sharing program countywide.

As part of Car-Free Day LI, Suffolk Executive Steve Bellone says that the college is an example that the county wants to follow. "We want bike share to be countywide," says Bellone.

The county has already submitted a request for information to explore options for a bike-sharing program. And the wheels are in motion to potentially have the program in Suffolk by next spring.

Meanwhile, the county executive also unveiled a new program to make public transportation easier to use.

The TransLoc bus app is now fully up and running.
