WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University is set to join the bike sharing movement when the service Zagster launches on the first day of the fall semester.

The program will offer 50 bicycles at more than a dozen stations on campus. The stations will be located near residence halls, offices, bus stops, parking lots and garages, and other areas popular among commuter students.

Users can buy a yearly membership for $25. Then they punch in a code on a mobile app to check out bikes at a station. Riders will make their trip and check the bikes in at another station.

The (Lafayette) Journal and Courier that anyone can sign up for a yearly membership beginning in August. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
