WHAT IS BIKE SHARE?
GOAL: The Cumberland Bike Share Expansion Plan will create and implement bike share expansion in the Cumberland area.
Bike share is a trending alternative, ideal for short distance recreation and point-to-point trip transportation. Bike share takes several forms, providing users with the ability to pick-up/return a bike at self-serve stations (aka docks) within a system service area.
Alternatively, in the case of dockless bike share, bicycles may be picked-up/dropped-off at any location or designated areas. Cities large and small from coast to coast have experienced rapid growth in bike share in recent years. Bike share is in multiple locations such as Smyrna, Town Center CID, Roswell, and the City of Atlanta.
BENEFITS OF BIKE SHARE
We’re excited to have three Zagster bike share stations in the Cumberland CID:
- Cochran Shoals – CRNRA
- Paces Mill – CRNRA
- The Battery Atlanta

ABOUT BIKE SHARE IN CUMBERLAND
The Cumberland area has the advantage and luxury of being located near an interchange of endless activities; existing in northwest Atlanta, both Inside-the-Perimeter (ITP) and Outside-the-Perimeter (OTP).
Our Cumberland Trails are an emerging system of existing and planned regional connecting trails, including the Bob Callan/Rottenwood Creek Trail, Silver Comet Connector Trail, the Mountain to River Trail, and the Chattahoochee River Trail. The Cumberland area presents the opportunity to be a major bike hub, with access to regional destinations such as The Battery/SunTrust Park, Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA), and CobbLinc Transfer Station.
The Cumberland CID has three bike share stations in the CRNRA at:
- Paces Mill/Palisades Park Unit
- Cochran Shoals Park Unit
- The Battery/SunTrust Park
More stations to come. Please check back for more information.
