Fort Collins, CO Teams Up with Zagster and Local Businesses to Implement Bikeshare, 2016
5 minutes Date Enacted: Apr 1, 2016
The City of Fort Collins, Colorado has transformed its former Bike Library into a state-of-the-art bike system by partnering with Zagster bikeshare operator, as well as local sponsor businesses. Uniquely, Fort Collins recognized that previous users of the Popular Bike Library had enjoyed renting bikes for all day or even multiple day excursions. To allow this to continue, the organization decided to cap daily user fees at $18, in addition to the $7 daily, $15 weekly or $60 annual membership fees. So for example, if a user purchases a $7 daily pass and incurs the $18 user fees they can effectively have a 24 hour rental for $25.
