|The Carmel Bike Share program has relaunched under a new vendor. The Carmel Bike Share is a great way to provide active transportation options for all of Carmel’s community members and visitors seeking a convenient and sustainable way to experience Carmel’s vibrant districts, neighborhoods and corporate corridors. While the bikes look the same, they have been all tuned up and are ready to ride. To access the bikes, you will need to download a new app from Movatic. If you previously used the Zagster app, you can delete that and make the switch to the Movatic app, which can be downloaded in the App Store and Google Play Store. For more information on Movatic, visit their website: https://www.movatic.co|
After downloading the app and entering your membership information, bikes can be checked out by scanning the QR code found on the downtube, just below the handlebars (see photo) and the bicycle should unlock. For users, the bikes cost $1.50 per half hour to rent with a cap of $24 for up to a 24-hour period. A $30 annual fee includes unlimited rides under one hour, with additional hours being charged at $1.50 per half-hour to a maximum of $24 for up to a 24-hour period.
Currently, there are a total of seven stations and 50 bikes in the new system. The program is expected to continue to grow as private companies and business parks consider adding new locations to their campuses.

Carmel City Hall, One Civic Square (southwest corner of parking lot)
