Gloucester Township has launched an app-powered bike-sharing program aimed at getting residents outside and active.

Ten white bikes are stationed at a kiosk at Church Street and Washington Avenue in Blackwood, just feet from a health and fitness trail. Once residents download the app Movatic on their smartphones, they can unlock one of the bikes with a provided code and ride for free – and as long as they want. A credit card is required to ensure the bike isn’t stolen, and it must be returned by dusk.

Step-by-step directions for renting can be found at the bike docking station.

The bikes, funded by a $19,000 open-space grant from Camden County, feature a bell, leather seats, a six-gear shifter and a small basket at the rear. Authorities say more bikes may be added and stations could be expanded if there is enough demand.
