Cyclists renting bikes in the first CID-sponsored bike share program in the state have logged more than 20,000 trips in the Town Center district since the program began in November 2015, breaking records with three times the ridership of any Zagster program in the United States.
Town Center Community Improvement District (TCCID) has 21 Zagster bikes in three stations throughout the Town Center CID along the Noonday Creek Trail. Since the program’s inception, 7,772 cyclists have averaged 219 trips per week in the community or on the District’s scenic trails.
“The Town Center community is at the forefront nationally by enthusiastically embracing cycling with this bike share program,” said Tracy Rathbone, TCCID Executive Director. “Our district is the perfect landscape to use Zagster Bikes as an easy, affordable way to run errands or get exercise in a fun way.”
Zagster bike rental stations are located at:
- Bells Ferry Trailhead — 2995 Bells Ferry Road
- Town Center Drive — Behind the mall, at the pedestrian bridge
- Aviation Park — 2659 Barrett Lakes Boulevard
Future plans include stations at the Kennesaw State University campus, local office parks, retailers, and hospitality sites, as well as a long-term strategy to connect to other stations throughout the region.
The bikes are free for the first hour every time, $3 per hour and $24 maximum per day. The bikes feature Bluetooth electronic ring locks, adjustable seat heights, automatic front and rear lights and seven gears. For more information: http://zagster.com/towncenter/
