“We are proud to support JerseyBike’s mission to enable broader access to transportation services for consumers in the area,” said owner, Roger J Muller Jr. “Not only does bike share help to alleviate parking woes, but it also provides a much-needed urban green footprint, promoting a healthier community.”
Muller Insurance’s sponsorship comes at a time when the importance of cycling and bike share has come to the forefront of national media. The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the day to day lives of Hudson County residents and cycling has emerged as an important form of public transportation. JerseyBike is committed to providing a safe and healthy transportation optionand sponsors, like Muller Insurance, allow JerseyBike to continue operating during this difficult time. To mitigate the risks associated with a shared transportation option, JerseyBike has modified its operations to ensure the safety and health of the communities it serves.

JerseyBike launched in Hoboken in October 2015 as Hudson Bike Share. Since then JerseyBike has expanded to Weehawken, West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen, Bayonne and Port Imperial.
Users can register by downloading the nextbike app. JerseyBike offers a daily, monthly, and 6-month pass, which allow for unlimited 45 minute ride, as well as a pay-as-you-go option for $2 per 30-minute ride. 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.
