Riding the Southfield bike share is easy. Bikes can be found via the free Zagster Mobile App — available for iPhone and Android — or online at www.zagster.com/southfield. Each bike has a unique number which riders enter into the app to disengage the ring lock and docking cable at the touch of a button. Alternatively, riders can obtain unlock codes via text message to use with an on-bike keypad. A retractable cable mounted to the bike allows the bike to be secured to any fixed object throughout a trip for mid-ride stops. After the rider returns the bike to a designated Zagster bike station, the rental ends and the bike is available for the next person to enjoy.
