After months of preparation and consultation with the University Crossing Public Improvement District (UCPID) board of directors, the UCPID has chosen Zagster to install four new bike stations on the University Crossing trail and throughout the neighborhood. The UCPID chose to install the docked bike stations to provide those living, working and visiting the area with a safe and convenient way to ride the trail and securely return the bikes to an appropriate docking station. (Note: By selecting the Zagster link, you will be directed to a landing page which will provide you with: a map showing the bike stations, price information, and an instructional video which explains how to use the bikes).
Through a public/private partnership with The Highland, The Shelby, Energy Square and the 6060 Building, the Zagster docking stations will be located on these properties in the University Crossing neighborhood. The UCPID is the first of Dallas' PIDs to invest in this type of alternative transportation. Further, the UCPID has allowed for the first three hours free for bikers using the service.
The bike stations have been installed, and are available to the public for use on Friday, March 23. We are planning a group ride and neighborhood celebration on Friday, March 23 from 4pm – 6pm.
Following the ride, we have partnered with WRR 101.1 to host a special Music on Mockingbird. WRR 101.1 will be presenting Bach in the Subway with the SMU Meadows School of the Arts Bridge the Gap Chamber Players at Mockingbird station beginning at 5:30pm after the Spring Ride on Friday.
The ride and Music on Mockingbird are FREE and open to riders and classical music fans of all ages!
