New Bike-Share Program Comes to Roswell

Post Date:10/13/2016 10:51 AM
The City of Roswell is excited to announce a new bike-sharing program at Big Creek Park on Old Alabama Road. The Zagster bike-sharing program allows visitors to use cruiser bikes for local trips on the Big Creek Greenway or anywhere locally, as long as the bike is returned to a Zagster station. The Roswell Zagster station joins four Alpharetta stations—three along the Alpharetta portion of the Big Creek Greenway, and one at Avalon.

The public is invited to join City of Roswell staff and public officials at a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Roswell Zagster station at Big Creek Park on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016, at 4 PM at the entrance to the Greenway (near the restrooms), 1600 Old Alabama Road.

"Roswell is excited to launch this new program. Bike-sharing improves community health, wellness, and mobility—all while reinforcing connectivity and fostering a sense of community," said Morgan Rodgers, Director of Roswell Recreation Parks, Historic, and Cultural Affairs.

Zagster is a leading provider of bike-share programs for cities, universities, and businesses and makes bike-sharing easy through the use of app-based technology.

To borrow a bike, riders download the app at our partner city’s site, www.zagster.com/Alpharetta. Next, you simply choose a bike from those at the station, enter the bike’s number into the app to get a security code, unlock the bike using the code, and ride. When you return your bike, you end your ride on the app and lock the bike at the station.

Bike trips under three hours are free. After three hours, riders will be charged $3/hour for non-members or $2/hour for members ($20 annual membership).

Zagster's cruiser bikes are comfortable, sturdy, and easy to ride and feature adjustable seats, eight gears, automatic lights, a bell, and a convenient front basket.
