By Marc Mortensen
St. George, Utah – December 8, 2017 – Bike sharing has emerged as one of the most successful transportation movements in North America in recent years and southern Utah is no exception. In St. George, getting around town on two wheels will become easier than ever with the LiVe Well St. George Bike Share by Zagster. Whether you’re interested in a leisurely ride on the paved multi-use paths, touring the downtown in the open air or commuting to work or class, bike share is affordable and convenient.
Zagster, one of the fastest growing bike share companies in the United States has teamed up with Intermountain Healthcare and Select Health and a host of other local sponsors like Dixie State University, Washington County Tourism Office and Brad Harr & Associates to design a bike share program that reduces carbon emissions, improves mobility and transportation options, encourages people to be physically active, reduces traffic congestion and promotes innovation.
The initial launch on January 11th, 2018 will feature 10 bike stations and 55 bikes accessible at a number of locations within a three-miles radius of downtown.
Access to a Zagster bike is right at your fingertips by following four simple steps:
How it Works
On any Apple or Android device download the Zagster app and create a profile. Search the app for St. George to find station locations near you.
Choose Your Bike
At a station enter the bike’s number into the app and tap START RIDE. You’ll get a unique code to open and close the lockbox.
Use the key from inside the lockbox to operate the U-lock that attaches the bike to its station. Be sure to shut the lockbox before you ride.
Have fun! Use the U-lock to keep the bike secure if you make stops along the way. When you’re done, lock the bike back to any Zagster station and close the lockbox. Then go to the app and tap END RIDE.
