A new bike share station will be added later this summer to the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, the Town Center Community Improvement District said.

The new station will be the sixth in the CID's bike share program, which has been operating for about five years. The CID's partnership with Zagster offers bicycles for rent for users who want a convenient way to get around without clogging up the roads with their vehicles.

Users can download the Zagster app on their smartphones, register as a rider in the Town Center bike share program and unlock the bike to begin their trips.

The new station is sponsored by the Cobb & Douglas Public Health Department, said Tracy Rathbone Styf, executive director of the Town Center CID.

Since 2015, the Zagster Town Center bike share program has logged more than 40,000 trips, the CID added.

The CID, which is made up of commercial property owners within the district who tax themselves to pay for public infrastructure projects, said this month that it will also replace all 40 bikes in the program.

The bike share program will be offline during this time, and updates on when the bike share system will return to service will be made on the Town Center CID's Facebook page or the Zagster Town Center app.

The CID’s current bike share stations are along the 7.5-mile Noonday Creek Trail at Bells Ferry trail head, Town Center Mall, Aviation Park, Founder’s Park and Avonlea Apartments on Chastain Meadows Road.
