The City of College Park Maryland has a bikesharing system, called mBike. The system is operated by Zagster, Inc. and offers 135 bikes at 15 stations across College Park, the University of Maryland campus, and surrounding areas. Riders may join College Park’s mBike for an hour, a day, a month, or a year. mBike is similar to Capital Bikeshare in that it uses technology to keep track of bicycles taken from and returned to a system of smart-docks. Unlike Capital Bikeshare, mBike offers riders the option of temporarily locking up bikes apart from the docking station, using a provided lock. mBike is also unique in that a number of three-wheeled accessible bicycles are made available throughout the system.
