NOBLESVILLE -

Noblesville is the latest Indiana city to launch a bikeshare program. The city is celebrating the opening of two bikeshare stations in a partnership with Massachusetts-based Zagster Inc.

The program features 10 cruiser bikes available for use by residents and visitors in what the city calls a "convenient, affordable and health way to get around town." Mayor John Ditslear says creating the program was a "natural" fit due to the city's increasing trail inventory. 

"I’m excited to get the Noblesville Bike Share rolling down the right path by opening our first two bike share stations in downtown Noblesville," said Ditslear. "These will allow residents and guests to take better advantage of the natural assets of our parks and the White River. This is just the beginning as Noblesville is working on bike share connectivity throughout Hamilton County."

Ditslear says the city plans to open a third bike station in May.

Zagster has helped launch bikeshare programs in several Indiana cities, including Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Evansville, West Lafayette and Carmel.

    • Ahh…Yes! Turning a Hot Mess into a Cool Breeze

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.
