Harrisburg Bike Share

Have lunch at your favorite eatery Downtown then zip over to your meeting in Midtown while getting exercise and fresh air in the process.

With 11 different locations and a total of 55 bikes to rent throughout the city, there’s sure to be one near you.

Zagster, the company that owns the bikes, has Bike Shares across the country including other nearby locations in Hershey, Reading, and York.

How to ride

When renting a bike, you have two options to fit your needs and budget.

Start by downloading the Zagster app to your phone so you can make quick and easy reservations for your ride. (Make sure you’re in the Harrisburg area to rent the correct bikes.)

Next, you can purchase an annual membership or simply pay as you go.

  • Membership: For only $25 a year, all rides under two hours are free with a $2/hour charge after that. It’s a real bargain if you plan to use the service frequently.
  • Pay as you go: At just $2 an hour, this is ideal if you’re in a pinch to get somewhere quickly, or if you just want to take a ride around the city on occasion.

Finally, to start your ride, just enter the bike’s number into the Zagster app, and you’re on your way.

Once your ride is finished, just return the bike to the nearest Zagster station to end your trip. Each bike also comes with a lock so you can secure the bike at pitstops during your ride.

You must have a Harrisburg membership to rent in the City. Although Zagster has other local locations, memberships do not transfer.

Zagster bikes are the perfect way to check out all the murals that were installed during HBG Mural Fest, create your own Harrisburg biking adventure, and hop from one side of town to the other in a fun way.

The Harrisburg Bike Share is operated by Communities in Schools of Pennsylvania, the nation’s leading dropout prevention organization. CISPA receives 93% of the profits generated by the bike share to help further their mission of supporting local students to stay in school.

This week, we’re giving away two (2) annual Harrisburg Bike Share Memberships!

    I would ride from downtown along the river path to Midtown and the Broad Street Market.
