Perfect amenity for health and sustainability oriented residents
DENVER, Colo. (December 9, 2013) – Zagster, a company that provides turnkey bike sharing programs for real estate providers, has partnered with Martin Fein Interests, Ltd. to launch bike sharing for residents of The Vue at RidgeGate, a Fein community located just south of Denver. The cruiser-friendly bikes are available for residents by the hour, giving them a convenient and healthy way to get around town.
The Vue at RidgeGate is a residential rental community located off Lincoln Avenue, I-25 and Park Meadows Drive. It features a collection of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments in 23 unique floor plans. With stylish, beautifully appointed interiors, Epicurean kitchens and must-have community amenities in a sleek "mountain modern" design, it’s the ultimate in luxury living. Initially, six Zagster bikes are available for tenants for free for the first two hours and then just $5 per hour afterwards.
“Zagster is the perfect new amenity for The Vue at RidgeGate,” said Timothy Ericson, co-founder and
CEO of Zagster. “From its luxury finishes to its health conscious residents, bike sharing will add a new level of convenience and fun at The Vue at RidgeGate.”
Each onsite bike contains a bike lock with the key stored inside a lock box. After joining Zagster at www.zagster.com, riders simply text 'start' plus the bike number (e.g. ‘start 46’) to a phone number. A confirmation message with the access code for the lock box is texted back. This action reserves the bike for the remainder of the day or until the bike is returned. Riders text “end” to the same number to release the bike for the next rider.
“Residents choose The Vue at RidgeGate for our high standards of quality, lifestyle and amenities,” said Denice Lacina, property manager at The Vue at RidgeGate. “With Zagster, our residents now have a new way to enjoy the many great restaurants, shopping and other retail located close by.”
Zagster features the Breezer Uptown, an award winning bike known for its lightweight, yet durable construction, specifically designed for city riding. All bikes will be located on property and will be equipped with spacious baskets for transporting groceries, books, or goodies from local retailers. With an attached flexible lock, riders can park their bikes wherever they want, allowing the ultimate in convenience.
Founded in Philadelphia in 2007 as CityRyde and now headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., Zagster is one of the nation’s first bike sharing companies. Zagster is uniquely focused on contracting with property managers, hotels, businesses, and universities across North America to make bike sharing programs available to tenants, employees, guests and students. This highly efficient and unique model allows Zagster to offer services in areas that traditional city-wide bike sharing systems can’t reach. Zagster is developing a national footprint of bike sharing programs in partnership with real estate/apartment companies, businesses, hotel chains and universities, all of whom are looking to provide value added services and benefits to tenants, guests or employees.
