Bike Rentals Now Open in Channahon!

Zagster


Channahon is officially the third suburban community to open a bike-sharing program! Similar to the Divy bikes in Chicago, Channahon now has Zagster, a bicycle rental facility completed in conjunction with the I&M Canal Corridor Association. The bike rental station is located along US Route 6 in front of Skateland Recreational Center. Once you are done, the bicycle can be returned to any of the open stations along the Canal.

The Bike Sharing System is truly a cooperative partnership between the Canal Corridor Association, the Illinois Office of Tourism (who provided a matching grant), local communities, corporations and other individuals.

Quick notes about the system:

  • You must be 18 years of age, or older, to rent a bike.
  • You must have a smartphone with the Zagster app downloaded to be able to rent a bike.
  • A credit card or debit card is needed to rent the bike.
  • The fee is $2.50 per hour.
  • You can only rent one bike at a time with each cell phone.

Locations currently open:

  • Channahon:  25334 West Eames (IL-6), along trail in front of Skateland
  • LaSalle:  754 First Street (corner of IL-351)
  • Morris:  Canal Port Park, Illinois Avenue & Wauponsee Street, in parking lot next to canal

Locations coming soon:

  • Lockport:  TBA
  • Utica:  IL-178 and W. Canal Street (in parking lot along the canal)
