Alpharetta has expanded its bike share program to the downtown area with the installation of a Zagster bike share station on the town green next to the interactive fountain.

There are now five Zagster stations in Alpharetta, with a sixth in Big Creek Park, Roswell, according to a city announcement.

The program started in May 2016 with 12 cruiser bikes at three stations on the Big Creek Greenway.

“The later addition of a station at Avalon and the new station in downtown Alpharetta, however, moves the city’s bike share program from being a recreational diversion to a more robust program that begins to connect key destination points,” the city said.

Bikes can be rented using the free Zagster Mobile App for iPhone and Android or at http://bike.zagster.com/alpharetta/. Annual and daily passes are available. Each bike has a basket, automatic lights, reflectors and a bell. Riders must provide their own helmets, required under Georgia law. Information: https://bit.ly/2YD1Q0M
