It will soon be easier to catch a bike to ride in the Peoria area.
Starting Friday, Enjoy Peoria and Zagster will have six Peoria-area bike stations available for their members to use for on-demand, local trips. Riders can pay as they go or join the program via weekly, monthly, or yearly packages. Rides for members are free for the first hour, then $3 per hour for every hour after.
"We are excited that the Peoria Area is joining communities across the country by implementing a bike share program," said Enjoy Peoria Community Development Manager Kaci Geier. "Bike transportation is a healthy means of getting around and adds vibrancy to our community."
Bike locations can be found via the Zagster mobile app or at http://zagster.com/citycycle.
The mayors of Peoria, East Peoria and Peoria Heights are set to unveil the program Friday at Peoria City Hall.
