JUMP Bike Share System Launches
The cities of Davis, Sacramento, and West Sacramento, in partnership with JUMP, have launched the largest pedal-assist bike share system in North America. The system launched with multiple rides from across the cities and then came together at a press conference at Raley field in West Sacramento. The celebration continued with a Maiden Voyage party at McKinley Park in Sacramento.
The system launched with 300 electric-assist bikes spread across the three cities, and an additional 600 bikes will be rolled out throughout the summer. Bike share hubs will also be installed throughout the cities to add bike parking infrastructure. The newly installed bike share hubs can be used by both JUMP bikes and privately owned bikes.
The cost to use the bikes is $1 for 15 minutes, and 7¢ a minute afterwards. Additional membership options include a monthly rate, a low-income plan, and a student plan. To use the system, users can download the JUMP Bike app on their smartphone through Google Play or the App Store and create an account. Once users have created an account, they can use a bike when they see it, or find one through the map on the app.
