Zagster ends its bike share program on Hershey campus

Citing financial difficulties, Zagster, the bike share provider that has served the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center campus since April 2017, informed Penn State Health this week that it is ending its ride sharing programs. The company had suspended its service in March due to COVID-19 concerns.

“We are very disappointed in Zagster’s announcement as the bike share program had been very popular here, with more than 1,700 active users registered on the Zagster system,” said Jim George, director of community relations, Penn State Health. Many of our bike share participants used the service to commute across campus, he said, noting that students, staff and community members also utilized the system to make personal trips into town and for recreational purposes.

George said that he hopes many of those who used the bike share program will bring their own bikes to campus. “We have a very active bike trail with racks for safe storage,” he said.
