mBike to End Operation in August

College Park’s bike share program, mBike, will end this summer, with the last day of operations on August 31, 2019. The City made this announcement yesterday.

The mBike is a collaborative bikeshare program between the City, and the UMD.

With the three-year contract coming to an end, the City was unable to come to terms on a replacement system with Zagster and have mutually agreed to part ways. The mBike program grew steadily over the past three years with more than 4,000 unique users and 130,000 trips.

The City, the UMD, and the Town of University Park intend to build on the success of mBike by introducing a new shared mobility system that provides pedal bikes, pedal-assist bikes and electric scooters. We hope to make details of this new system public very soon.

The County is also rolling out the Capital bike share network in College Park and the surrounding municipalities.
