START Bike provides a convenient and easy-to-use transportation alternative for short trips in the downtown area. This past summer, residents and visitors alike utilized the START Bikes located at docking stations throughout the Town of Jackson. Those wishing to utilize the bike program are encouraged to use the START Bike app in order to locate available bikes.

“START Bike is a leading example of government working with other entities to enhance the quality of life in our community,” said Darren Brugmann, START Director.



COVID-19  and START Bike

What we’re doing and how you can help reduce the spread!

What we’re doing:

● Daily disinfecting of bicycle contact points with an EPA approved disinfectant, during scheduled maintenance routes

● The mandate for field technicians to wear PPE while touching bikes and station components

● Strict personal hygiene and social distancing requirements at the START Bike headquarters

● Frequent disinfecting of technician’s tools

● Continued monitoring of the latest updates from local, state, and federal public health officials

What you can do to help: 

● If you are experiencing symptoms, or have been ordered to self-quarantine please do not use the bike share system at this time

● Wash your hands or use an approved hand sanitizer before and after using the bikes

● Respect social distancing guidelines and maintain a minimum of 6-ft between yourself and other riders

● Our pathways system is experiencing a very high number of users. Be respectful, ride slowly, use the bell when passing


Biking is a great way to avoid crowds, get fresh air, and improve your physical and mental health in these challenging times.
