"We are extremely excited to start the expansion of our bike share program in Hudson County," Carlos Pujol, CEO of P3 Global Management, Hudson Bike Share's parent company, said in a statement.
This fall, Hudson Bike Share, the public bike share program operating in Hoboken, will add 260 new bikes and 35 new stations throughout North Bergen and neighboring towns.
Users can register online or download the NextBike app. The cost of the program is $95 per year or $12.95 a month and includes unlimited 45-minute trips. Riders can also choose a pay-as-you-go option for $2 per 30-minute ride.
Riders can use a smart phone or key card to unlock bicycles at any of the stations in the system. Once rented, the user will be given a code to unlock the bike, and begin their 30 or 45-minute ride.
Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer says the program, "will become one of the largest bike share systems in the country.”
