Bike share program off and cycling in Danville
The Danville bike share program officially opened Friday with a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The Danville Rides Bike Share docking stations will consist of 10 locks and five bikes, allowing ride
rs ages 18 and older to travel from one unit to another without having to make a return trip, according to a news release from Danville Parks and Recreation.
Stations will be located at the Biscuitville, Main Street Plaza, Crossing at the Dan and Dan Daniel Park Riverwalk Trailheads and in front of the Danville Train Station.
The Crossing at the Dan and train station trailhead lockers opened Friday.
Bikes come outfitted with a retractable locking cable to allow riders to secure the bike to any fixed object during the rental period, the release stated.
Bikes can be accessed through the Zagster mobile app available for iPhone and Android. Bikes have a number that needs to be entered into the app to unlock the docked bike. Payment can be made through the app.
The first hour is free. Each additional hour costs $3.
The rental period ends when the bike is returned to any of the five locker locations.
