Bike sharing program expands, again

Bike sharing program expands, again

A popular bike-sharing program is expanding again in Cleveland. "Zagster" launched late last fall in Cleveland with 34 bikes and keeps adding more.

The company's adding 28 more bikes at five new locations. The expansion brings the total number of bikes to 78 in the downtown Cleveland area.

New locations, with five bikes and slots for 10 on the rack include: 
? Superior Avenue at the library, sponsored by the Cleveland Public Library.
? The Campus of Notre Dame College sponsored by Notre Dame College 
? The North Coast Harbor location near the lakefront sponsored by Cumberland Development
New locations, with four bikes and slots for 8 on the rack include:
? Detroit and 58th by Happy Dog, sponsored by Detroit-Shoreway Community Development Organization
? Cleveland Museum of Art, sponsored by University Circle 

Here's how the program works, rent a bike then return it. Simple. Pricing begins at $3 per hour with a cap at $24 for up to 24 hours. A $15 monthly or $75 annual fee includes unlimited rides under one hour, with additional hours being charged at $3 per hour to a maximum of $24. Bikes can be taken one way or round trip, but must be returned to a Zagster bike location. A map of locations is available online.
