Sponsored by CarePoint, Suez North America, Bijou Properties, Zipcar, Investors Bank & Keller Williams City Life Realty,
Special Discounted Annual $75 Membership Available Through Sunday 10/11
The City of Hoboken, in partnership with Bike and Roll, nextbike, E3Think, and P3 Global Management, has officially activated Hoboken’s new bike share system. The system, known as Hudson Bike Share, launched at 1 p.m. today. Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer joined the operators and founding sponsors of Hudson Bike Share, which include Carepoint Health, Bijou Properties, Suez North America, Zipcar, Investors Bank, and Keller Williams City Life Realty, to cut the ribbon and unveil the tri-state area’s first next-generation bike share system. The special early bird $75 annual membership rate (regularly $95/year) will continue through Sunday, October 11th.
As of today’s launch, 17 stations and 120 bikes are active, expanding to 29 stations and 250 bikes in the coming weeks. Those with annual memberships can begin using the system immediately, and their membership will be extended to last until one year after all stations are installed. Stations will be located within a three to five-minute walk of every Hoboken resident. The bicycles feature next-generation “smart bike” technology with built-in GPS. This innovative technology provides a superior bike share system at a fraction of the cost of traditional dock-based systems used in many other cities.
“With today’s launch of Hudson Bike Share, our residents and visitors will have a new convenient transportation option that makes it easy to travel from anywhere to anywhere in our Mile-Square City,” said Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “From the start, we have been focused on creating an affordable bike share system that puts bike share stations in every neighborhood. I am grateful to our founding sponsors whose generosity has made bike share in Hoboken possible and thank them for their incredible support.” More >
