Fort Wayne Bike Share Cuts Membership Fees in Half

It’s less expensive than ever to ride Fort Wayne Bike Share and support the local biking community. This month, Fort Wayne Bike Share, operated by the City of Fort Wayne, cut its annual membership rates from $60 to $30. And for a limited time, residents who use the code Gobike365 can get an extra $5 off.

The City partners with Zagster to operate the Bike Share program, which includes 30 bikes available at five downtown locations and Indiana Tech for riders to check-out for on-demand, local trips. Anyone can ride by purchasing a day pass or joining with a monthly or annual membership. Rides for members are free for up to an hour, then $3 per hour after. Riders join the system using a simple app or text messages; instructions are found here: http://bike.zagster.com/fortwayne/.

“Fort Wayne is committed to encouraging healthy and active lifestyles,” said Mayor Henry. “Our investment in Bike Share helps us further position Fort Wayne as a point of destination for individuals, families and businesses.”

Fort Wayne Bike Share is part of the City’s comprehensive plan to support active transportation, specifically biking. More people using bikes for transportation helps reduce traffic congestion on City streets, improve air quality and keep bike riders healthy. Additionally, studies show that more people are attracted to communities with good bike infrastructure that can be used for commuting as well as recreation. Learn more at www.bikefortwayne.org.
