NEW JERSEY – Hunter Homes is now an official sponsor of JerseyBike, the two companies announced today. JerseyBike and Hunter Homes will collaborate to provide a healthy and environmentally- friendly transportation option throughout Hudson County, enabling riders to travel more efficiently to downtown areas and other forms of transit.
Hudson Bike Share launched in Hoboken in October 2015 and recently expanded to Weehawken, West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen, Bayonne and Port Imperial for a total of 560 bikes. The system currently has over 28,000 registered members and has clocked over 483,000 rides since inception.
“As a local business owner and advocate for both physical fitness and greener living, I’m excited to partner with and support Hudson Bike Share” said Jason Hunter. “I believe the bike share is a terrific way to get around town, spread the word about my company and what we offer, and help protect the environment. It’s a win-win, and I’m so glad to be part of it.”
Users can register online or download the nextbike app. The cost of the program is $95 per year or $12.95 a month and includes unlimited 45-minute trips. Riders can also choose a pay-as-you-go option for $2 per 30-minute ride. The expansion of the program will allow access to a greater number of New Jersey residents while providing a strong and reliable service for users of all types.
Riders can use a smart phone or key card to unlock bicycles at any of the stations in the system. Once rented, the user will be given a code to unlock the bike and begin their 30 or 45-minute ride. The highlight of the system is the ability to park the bikes temporarily, as well as the ability for users to end their trip at a station that is already full. This feature, which is lacking in prior-generation bike sharing models, allows users to make stops mid-trip and eliminates the frustration of arriving at an already full station.
