What is a Bike Share?

About the Program:

A bike share is an opportunity for community residents and visitors to access bikes for transportation, exercise, and/or pleasure in the Schuylkill Haven area.

The proposed bike share program would have one location for pick up and drop off in Schuylkill Haven.

Managed by the Schuylkill Haven Recreation Department, with support from the Schuylkill River Heritage Area, Bike Haven would be  available to anyone aged 16 or over providing a driver's license or valid state ID. People under the age of 16 could use bikes with an adult.

It would be as simple as visiting our location in Schuylkill Haven, registering a bike for the day, and enjoy a ride on one of our  cruisers and see what it’s all about. The bikes would be sturdy, well-maintained, easy to use, and, most of all, they are fun to ride!
