Suffolk County has partnered with Zagster and Bethpage Federal Credit Union to launch Bethpage Ride, a regional bikeshare service powered by Zagster’s Pace bikeshare platform. Bethpage Ride is “now available in the Village of Babylon, the Village of Patchogue, and Hampton Bays, in the town of Southampton.” Bikes can be reserved through the Pace app and ridden for a cost of $1 per 15 minutes. Fixed-rate monthly and yearly plans are also available and allow riders to take unlimited trips of up to 30 minutes. At the end of a trip, riders can either return their bike to one of the Pace docking stations or lock it elsewhere for a $2 fee. Bethpage Ride is supported by funding from Bethpage Federal Credit Union and aims to improve mobility.
