In early 2018, the City of Healdsburg launched Sonoma County’s first bike-share program. The program is the result of a two-year effort by the City, its transportation advisory commission, Hotel Trio, Best Western Dry Creek Inn, and community residents to help reduce personal vehicle usage, free up parking spaces in the downtown area, and provide a healthy alternative to get from Point A to Point B.
The City is partnering with Cambridge, Mass.-based Zagster, the country’s largest bike-share provider, to implement the program. About 25 Zagster cruiser-style bikes – complete with basket, automatic lights, reflectors and a bell --- are available at eight bike-share stations around the city.
To use the bikes, first download the Zagster mobile app (iOS and Android) and sign up for an annual membership or for hourly uses. There is a one-time membership fee of $5 to take part in the bikeshare program. The City is offering $2 off this fee with the code HBGLOCAL. Once you’ve signed up, it’s free to use the bikes for the first hour, then it will cost $8 per half-hour after that, up to $64. There is a $30 overtime fee for trips lasting more than 24 hours. Riders can return their bikes to any bike-share station in town. For more information about the Healdsburg bike-share program, go to: http://bike.zagster.com/healdsburg/.
