Have You Been Zapped?
The Bike Center is the base for the ZAP Program - an innovative RFID system, which permits bicyclists, who install an identity tag on their bikes, to earn benefits and incentives, such as reduced costs for tune-ups and commuter goods by simply validating their bike trips. Learn more.
