Zagster and the City of Salem has just launched a new “on-demand” bike share service that is going to be a terrific resource for residents, commuters, and visitors who want to explore the city. The Salem Bike Share has 18 cruiser bikes available across three stations: Federal Street at Washington Street (near the MBTA), Front Street/Derby Square, and Blaney Street/Salem Ferry. Zagster bikes have a built-in bike lock which allows users to ride the bike as long as they want and stop wherever they want along the way and lock the bike. Bikes need to return to any Zagster-Salem station at the end of a ride.
Using the Zagster-Salem Bike Share is easy. Bikes are accessible at any station via the Zagster Mobile App – available for iPhone and Android – or online at bike.Zagster.com/Salem.
Step 1: Use the Zagster app to unlock a bike at a station.
Step 2: Enjoy your ride!
Step 3: When you are ready to end your trip, bring the bike back to any Zagster station and press the lock button to end the ride.
Ridership is possible through two options:
Option 1: Hourly Rate ($3.00/hour).
Option 2: Annual Membership ($25/year or $10 with promotional code BIKESALEM through August 2017). Annual memberships provide unlimited rides with the first hour free. Additional hourly fees apply for longer rides.
Salem’s bike share features the Zagster 8, an award-winning bike known for its practical design, comfortable riding, and easy handling. The bike includes a spacious front basket that’s perfect for carrying shopping bags or personal belongings. As rider safety is a priority, every bike includes automatic lights, a bell, and full reflectors. Riders must be 18 years or older. Please obey traffic laws, wear a helmet, and be a safe rider.
