Get Ready to Rent and Ride a Bike in Pascagoula
PASCAGOULA, MISS. July 5, 2017 – The City of Pascagoula will launch its new bike-sharing program on Friday, July 7 at 4:00 p.m. with a ribbon cutting in downtown Pascagoula. The public is invited to attend.
Three bike-sharing stations will be located across the city, one at the Jolly McCarty Historic Train Depot, Beach Park and IG Levy Park. The new program is a partnership between the city and the national bike-sharing firm, Zagster.
To enjoy the service, users will download the Zagster mobile app, choose the Pascagoula location and receive a code to check out a bicycle that has a u-lock, a basket, and front and rear lights for safe riding. Once the ride is complete, the user returns the bicycle to any of the locations, and ends the ride on the app.
There will be a total of 10 bikes between the three stations. Participants will pay $3 per hour for up to 8 hours. Residents are also encouraged to register for an annual membership for $25.
City leaders hope that this service will highlight the city’s Historic Bike Trail and Second Saturday Bike Ride.
“We encourage residents and visitors to explore the many historic points of interest in our city,” said Community Development and Business Retention Director. “Bike share will be a great addition to our city.”
In partnership with the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, the ribbon cutting will be followed by a short ride in downtown Pascagoula.
