WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Zagster says that due to the effect of COVID-19, Bike Share ICT will be closed down immediately. The company sent out an email to users on Monday.
The company said it has disabled all rides and will be terminating rider accounts. All bike stations will be removed this week. Wichita Transit Director Michael Tann said he was notified Friday.
“We were shocked,” said Tann. “We’ve had some conversations during the course of the pandemic as to what their plans were and heard absolutely nothing other than we anticipated a startup again.”
Tann believes this is just a bump in the road and the city plans to find another bike share supplier soon.
“We’re hoping and probably thinking it won’t be long before those conversations will start,” said Tann. “Bike shares been extremely successful. We’ve had a lot of support from city council, from the mayor from the citizens and that is something we want to see continue in a holistic approach.”
