Zagster is a full-service bike share provider that uses app-based technology to give riders a flexible, affordable and environmentally-friendly way to travel on a local level. Since adopting the Zagster bike share program in the summer of 2015, Purdue University has seen tremendous growth in the number of Zagster users. With this rapid growth came the opportunity to expand the program off campus into West Lafayette, as well as over the river into downtown Lafayette.
Zagster’s “smart bike” technology allows customers to start a ride by downloading the Zagster app, en- tering the bike’s number and using a provided code to unlock the bike’s lockbox. A key from inside the lockbox then unlocks the U-lock that attaches the bike to the station. The rider is then able to use the bike and keep it secure throughout the ride with the U-lock and code, when finished the bike can be returned at any local docking station. With this expansion, Lafayette and West Lafayette have each installed three bike share stations throughout their urban cores and introduced a combined total of 30 Zagster bicycles into Greater Lafayette.
