Town Center CID Wins ARC Create Community Award for Technology

Well-received Zagster bikeshare Program honored for innovation and quality of life improvement

The Town Center Community Improvement District (TCCID) was awarded the 2016 CREATE Community Award for Technology by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) this week in recognition of the Zagster Town Center bikeshare Program. The TCCID launched the program in late 2015, one of its many well-received efforts to increase access, beautification and investment in the Town Center area of Cobb County.

The Zagster Town Center bikeshare Program provides an affordable, convenient way for Town Center area visitors or residents to get around town. Using the Zagster mobile app or text function, a user is able to unlock a bicycle at one of three Zagster bike stations. The first hour of the ride is always free, and each additional hour is only $3. Operational since November 2015, the program now has nearly 2,000 members who have logged more than 4,000 trips. The program has been extremely successful; averaging more than 80 new members and 150 rides each week.

For more information about the station locations and updates on the program, including membership registration and docking station map, please visit www.zagster.com/towncenter.

“We are thrilled that our Zagster Town Center bikeshare Program has been recognized with this award,” said CID Executive Director Tracy Rathbone. “Developing innovative projects to improve access to and connectivity across the Town Center area is a main focus for the CID, and this recognition is a powerful nod that regional leadership sees us moving in the right direction. We’re proud to be part of the efforts that are bringing metro communities closer together.”

The ARC recognized six local governments in six areas of innovation: Arts & Culture, Community Involvement & Collaboration, Educational Excellence, Environmental Sustainability, Regional Prosperity & Economic Development and Technology. The Town Center CID was the only community improvement district to be honored.
