Salina, Kansas – KANcycle, the bike share program of north central Kansas, may be looking for another provider following a recent announcement from Zagster.

OCCK, Inc. has been advised that Zagster, the company responsible for providing the bicycles for the KANcycle bike sharing program, had closed bike sharing in many locations across the country, including Wichita. OCCK has also been advised that Zagster is going out of business and will be liquidating its assets effective immediately. OCCK has not received a direct notification from the company.

The company sent an email to other partners earlier this week.

“We are disappointed by this recent turn of events,” said Michelle Griffin, Mobility Manager for north central Kansas.  “Zagster closed down bike sharing at the end of March because of COVID-19, but we hoped that it was just temporary. KANcycle has been so successful and we know people are enjoying riding bikes. If these advisements are true, we plan to have another bike share supplier soon.”

OCCK is in the process of researching and partnering with other vendors. Additional announcements will be made in the future once decisions are made.

KANcycle, a program of OCCK, provides north central Kansas with convenient, affordable access to bicycles as an easy, fun, healthy and eco-friendly means of transportation and recreation. Bike racks can be found in Salina, Minneapolis, Concordia, Belleville, Mankato, Beloit, Lincoln and Ellsworth. KANcycle is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas.

OCCK, Inc. provides services in north central Kansas to anyone with any type of long or short-term disability, starting as early as birth and following people through their whole lives. OCCK provides an array of supports for success at home and in the community, including independent living skills and supports, employment and career training, Alzheimer’s supports, autism services, assistive technology, children’s services, transportation, specialized therapies, and home health care.
