Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park Bike Share Station Installed

September 27, 2019

The Town Center Community Improvement District (Town Center CID) and Town Center Community Alliance (the Alliance) announce the opening of the bike share station at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Earlier this year, the addition of this station, in partnership with Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and generously sponsored by Cobb & Douglas Public Health, was announced making this the sixth station in Town Center’s bike share system.

Launched in 2015, the Town Center bike share system includes five other stations located along Noonday Creek Trail giving access to a number of key destination points and beautiful trail scenery. This new station gives Zagster users the opportunity to start their ride even closer to this richly historical area.

The Town Center bike share system has more than 45,800 trips logged with its now 6 stations and 45 bikes maintaining its status as Zagster’s most successful bike share system of its size. The bikes installed at this new station match the newly updated Zagster bikes, which launched last month. Those interested in riding can download the Zagster app on their smart phone and register as a user in the Town Center bike share. Zagster’s smart phone app gives step-by-step directions on how to unlock and relock the bikes making it easy for riders 18 and older. The Town Center CID and the Alliance provide the first hour free and encourage all to wear a helmet during each ride.

The Town Center CID and the Alliance are continuing to work with partners towards a regional bike share program by expanding and connecting the existing programs throughout Cobb County. Bike shares serve as an affordable source of exercise and recreation as well as an efficient means of transportation. Many municipalities and groups in Cobb and beyond are working towards having the infrastructure in place to support such a system. With more than 200 miles of existing trails in Cobb County, the region is well on its way to creating a more connected trail system and reaching the goal of a broader system.

All current bike share stations in Town Center’s program are located along the seven-and-a-half-mile Noonday Creek Trail—at Bells Ferry Trailhead, Town Center Mall, Aviation Park, Founder’s Park and Avonlea Apartments (on Chastain Meadows Road). The program will continue to grow as stations are installed in additional locations.
