Hoboken’s long-awaited bike share program is now here. Thanks to the efforts of our Mayor, City Council and generous corporate sponsors – Carepoint Health, Bijou Properties, SUEZ North America, Zipcar, Investors Bank, and Keller Williams City Life Realty, the program is now a reality.
There are now 17 stations and 120 bikes active. And plans for a total expansion of 29 stations and 250 bikes in the coming weeks.
Memberships are $95 for a year, allowing for unlimited 45 minute rides. This program is already much less than the CitiBike equivalent of $149 a year. And those who register before this Sunday can register for only $75 a year. Steven’s students, as well as those in Hoboken Housing Authority residences, can register for $60. Signing up is as simple as visiting hudsonbikeshare.com
The bikes are “nextbikes” and can be rented via a smartphone app. The following video provides a great overview:
It’s an exciting time to be a Hoboken resident. With only a square mile of space, Hoboken is perfect for biking, and the focus on bikesharing will make our city less reliant on cars, greener and a better place to live.
