There are also a new additions to Penn State's Zagster bike share program, which recently celebrated the start of its third year of operation by surpassing 50,000 rides. During Arrival Weekend the first off-campus bike share station was installed downtown on Allen Street across from the State College Borough Building. This station is funded by the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) as a one-year pilot program between Penn State and the State College Borough to determine if additional off-campus stations are feasible. Three new on-campus stations were also added near Willard Building, Nittany Hall, and the Land and Water Research Building, the last of which was partially sponsored by the Sustainability Institute. With the additon of these four new stations and 25 new bikes, Penn State's Zagster bike share program is now comprised of 110 bikes across 21 stations.

Annual memberships for Zagster are just $25 for students and $35 for faculty and staff. To learn more and to sign up for the Penn State Zagster program, visit zagster.com/psu.
