Bike-Sharing comes to Cleveland
Based on a system developed by Zagster, rather than expensive kiosks with touch-screens, the Cleveland bike share uses a smartphone app, along with key lockboxes attached to the bicycles, for the check-out and check-in process. This allows for a much more reasonably cost implementation, as well as more flexibility in the location of bike stations.
With six initial bike stations located on the near West Side, plans are to expand the system with additional stations throughout downtown and the East Side, including University Circle.
