Pace Bike Share Launches in Knoxville 
Great to help launch Pace bike share with a ribbon-cutting at Krutch Park today.

Pace, a first-of-its-kind dockless bike share service, launched today in Knoxville. With just a tap on a smartphone, you can rent one of 200 smart bikes for an on-demand trip. 

It's easy to rent and return bikes from any of Pace's 20 dedicated bike parking racks, or from any public bike racks. For more details, click HERE. Or visit knoxvilletn.gov/bikeshare/.

“The City of Knoxville is proud to welcome the Zagster team,” said Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero. “Their Pace bike share service will support Knoxville’s existing bike-friendly culture and complement our extensive network of greenways and bike lanes for recreational riders and commuters.”

To ride Pace, riders simply download the free Pace bike share app, available in the App Store or Google Play. Riders find available bikes and parking locations in the app, and can unlock bikes at the touch of a button. Pace rides in Knoxville cost $1.50 per half hour, and the first 30-minute ride for every new user is free.

One of Knoxville's first bike-share customers was Indya Kincannon, City Special Program Manager (pictured below), who pedaled from today's Pace launch at Krutch Park to her next meeting across town.

"With the love Knoxville has for biking, it’s only natural that we’d want and expect the best — and that’s what we’re getting," said Kim Bumpas, President of Visit Knoxville."Pace will allow visitors and locals alike to enjoy more than 85 miles of greenway throughout Knox County and access many of Knoxville’s most popular spots, including the UT Campus, World's Fair Park, the Tennessee River and Knoxville's Urban Wilderness.”
