“Biking is good for the environment, it helps our residents connect to jobs and commercial districts, and it’s good for our health,” said Mayor John Moor. “We’re one of the first cities in New Jersey with a bike share program, and definitely the first along the Jersey Shore.” “A bike share system is the kind of amenity that people expect to see in a city like ours,” said Deputy Mayor Amy Quinn. “This system is a piece of the transportation puzzle that will help to reduce parking demand in our commercial districts, connect residents to important destinations, and make Asbury Park an even more attractive place to live, work and visit.”
