The Pace bike share program has been shut down in Fort Collins.

Zagster, the company that operates Pace, informed the city on Wednesday that it would end its services in Fort Collins, effective immediately. 

The coronavirus pandemic’s impact on Zagster led to the decision, according to a news release from the city of Fort Collins.

“While we’re disappointed and surprised by this news, we understand this is a difficult time for many businesses,” said Tessa Greegor, active modes manager for the city, in the release. “The City is committed to exploring options for a similar program as a service to our residents and visitors.”

Pace bikes and stations were being removed beginning Thursday.

TESTING: COVID-19 tests to be offered at homeless shelters

Operations for Pace began in 2016, and its peak usage included 250 bikes and 42 stations. The contract was due to expire in August.

The Pace website says users may contact support@zagster.com if they wish to terminate their account. The news release said Zagster would begin to contact users Friday.
