CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Delegates to the upcoming Democratic National Convention in Charlotte can use a different kind of power during their week in the city.

A demonstration scheduled for Thursday will unveil the Freewheelin pedal bus. Humana is providing the buses free to those attending the convention beginning Sept. 2.

A statement from Humana says it is providing 20 pedal buses as a means of transportation, not only in Charlotte but also at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

Humana said the buses can get delegates to hot spots throughout the city. Pedal buses are slated to make stops at multiple Freewheelin stations that will offer free biometric health screenings, fresh fruit and cold water to riders.
