Following in the footsteps of programs like NYC's CitiBike, Asbury Park is introducing their own bike-sharing program.

Thirty cruiser bikes are now in place at six stations across Asbury. The project was funded by waterfront redeveloper iStar, boardwalk redeveloper Madison Marquette, The Asbury, and Home Drugs pharmacy on Main Street.

The Asbury Park Bike Share System is run by Zagster, a company that has set up bike-shares across the country. The bikes are a simple design, meant to give bikers a comfortable ride with easy handling. All bikes also include lights, reflectors, and a bell for safety.

Riders must be 18 and older and can join the program by signing up for an annual $30 subscription or $3 per-hour rides.

If you want to try out the bike-share, you can download the Zagster app (iPhone or Android). Each bike has a number that you enter into the app to unlock it. You can return the bike to any of the stands across the town to end your ride. You can also sign up online at
