BIKE SHARE!

Let The Bike Sharing Begin

Six Zagster rental stations installed across the city

The New Bike Share in Asbury Park will be officially launched on Tuesday at 4:30pm at the AP Transit Center.  The final concert of the summer season will take place afterward.

 

For more information about the Bike Share:

Riders can use the Zagster Mobile App [available for iPhone and Android] or online at bike.zagster.com/asburypark. Each bike has a unique number, which riders enter into the app to disengage the ring lock and docking cable at the touch of a button. A retractable cable mounted to the bike allows the bike to be secured to any public bike rack throughout a trip for mid-ride stops.
