Eric Galt (L) and Pete Cleary (R) show off a Zagster bicycle in front of All Spoked Up in downtown Aurora. Zagster, a bike sharing company, will be at three locations in and near downtown starting in June.

Zagster is a bike sharing company and it’s coming to Aurora this summer. The city of Aurora is working with Zagster to secure three bike sharing or rental locations by June 10.

Eric Galt, traffic engineer for the city of Aurora, said that the details are still being ironed out, but that Aurora will receive three bike rental stations in downtown Aurora.

The locations will most likely be near City Hall at Water Street Mall, Santori Library, and the Aurora Transportation Center. Galt said the locations are still tentative.

Zagster works like Divvy stations seen in Chicago; riders use their credit card to rent the bikes from rental stations throughout the city. The bikes are free for the first 30 minutes and a variety of options are available for renting them.

A Zagster app is available for phones.
