Aug 5, 2019

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Montgomery is getting closer to seeing folks cruising through the city on rented bikes as part of its new bike share program.

City officials say the roughly 55 bikes and over 10 bike stand stations will be ready within the next two weeks. Citizens will be able to rent bikes by late August.

WSFA-TV reports the partnership with Zagster, a micro-mobility vendor, will allow people to rent bikes for $1 per hour fee. The rental sites will include locations like The Rosa Parks Museum and Riverwalk Stadium. The city will distribute a full list of locations when the bikes are ready for public use.

The bike program is at no cost to the city. It was funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield, Wind Creek Hospitality and Baptist Health.
