Summit Bike Share rolls out with new locations

Summit County's bikeshare program with Bewegen Technologies was the first all-electronic bikeshare in the United States.

The docking station at Old Town Transit Center was removed for the winter and will return alongside 4 new docking locations this season.

E-bikes are available starting May 14 with four new locations: Park City Hospital, Lincoln Station Apartments, Park City Visitor’s Center and Frostwood Village at Canyons Village.

Summit Bike Share's relaunch coincides with National Bike to Work Week.

The Snyderville Basin-area service makes e-bikes available for rent at docking stations from Jeremy Ranch to Quinn’s Junction.

There are four new stations: Park City Hospital, Lincoln Station Apartments, Park City Visitor’s Center and Frostwood Village at Canyons Village.

Summit County removed stations within Park City municipal boundaries to aid the city’s snow removal, but those stations will be reinstalled this season.

“We've done a lot of work this offseason to clean up some of our internal processes and make sure we're putting out a really awesome fleet of bikes and stations this year,” County Engineer Steve Dennis said.

That work included surveying residents last year and hiring mechanics.

This will be Summit County’s first full year operating the e-bike service in-house. When it launched in 2017, Summit Bike Share was the first all-electric bike share program in the United States.

A 30-minute ride is $4, then 18 cents per minute after that. A 4-day pass is $20, a month pass is $45 and a season pass is $130.

The county will be organizing signup events in the coming month, which will offer discounts on season passes and helmets.

“We heard a lot of the feedback [in the end-of-season survey],” Dennis said. “There were a lot of concerns about safety, general bike etiquette and proper use of bikes and signaling—both on trails and roadways—as well as helmets.”

The county will offer e-bike-rated helmets below market price at $30. Helmets will be for purchase, not for rent, although the county is looking to partner with local bike shops on a free helmet library.
