Peoria bike-sharing program launches Friday

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

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

The mayors of Peoria, East Peoria and Peoria Heights are set to unveil the program Friday at Peoria City Hall.
