Zagster and the City of Lakeland have partnered to bring Swan City Cycles — a public bike sharing program. Swan City Cycles invites Lake Morton residents to start using the bikes so we are offering a FREE pass for your first bike share experience.

The Lakeland program includes 35 cruiser bikes that are available at seven locations around the City for riders to checkout for on-demand, local trips. Stations in the neighborhood are at Florida Southern College and the Polk Museum of Art. (A stations locations map is on the web site and app.) Riders can become Swan City Cycle members by purchasing an annual, monthly or hourly pass.  An annual passes can be purchased for only $25. Rides for annual members are free for up to an hour and a half, then $3 per hour after.

The program is made possible by sponsorship from the City of Lakeland’s Community Redevelopment Authority, Lakeland Downtown Development Authority, as well as: Lakeland Vision, Citrus Connection, , Polk Museum of Art, Lake Morton Neighborhood Association, First United Methodist and Florida Southern College.

Riders can join by following the instructions on the Zagster Mobile App, available for iPhone and Android, or online at http://zagster.com/lakeland.  To use the Mobile App, riders simply enter the unique ID of the bike they wish to use and an access code for the lock box is provided. Alternatively, they can text the bike ID and receive the code in return. Riders can use the code throughout the duration of their rental to lock and unlock the bike anywhere along their trip. Once the bike is returned to any of the seven Swan City Cycles locations, the touch of a button ends the rental and releases the bike for the next rider.

Zagster features the Breezer Uptown, an award-winning bike known for its lightweight yet durable construction, specifically designed for cruising in comfort. All bikes come with spacious baskets perfect for carrying groceries, take out or other personal belongings. With an attached flexible lock, riders can park their bikes wherever they want during their trips, allowing for convenience and flexibility.
