NEW JERSEY – Muller Insurance is now an official sponsor of JerseyBike, the two companies announced today. JerseyBike and Muller Insurance 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.
“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.”
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.
