NEW JERSEY – Whole Foods Market is now an official sponsor of JerseyBike, the two companies announced. JerseyBike and Whole Foods Market 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.
“We are excited to partner with JerseyBike to encourage our neighbors to get to our new store in Weehawken this convenient way. Our core purpose is ‘Nourishing people and the planet,’ and JerseyBike certainly supports that goal,” said Weehawken Whole Foods Market Store Team Leader, Jose Navas.
As part of the partnership, the first 25 JerseyBike riders to show their active account status on their nextbike app at the Weehawken Whole Foods Market Customer Service Booth will be entitled to a complimentary cycle backpack, while supplies last.
Hudson Bike Share launched in Hoboken in October 2015 and has since expanded to Weehawken, West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen, Bayonne and Port Imperial, rebranding in 2018 at JerseyBike, with a total of 560 bikes. The system currently has over 52,000 registered members and has clocked over 678,000 rides since inception.
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.
