You’ve got options with Blue Water Transportation

By Karrie Beck

Looking for a different way to see a city? Maybe you’re in the mood to enjoy the fall weather that’s recently come our way? Or if you simply want to move more, consider taking an afternoon to check out Zagster Bike Share, Port Huron’s latest public transportation option. A rent/share bike program available in downtown Port Huron. Visit the city from a new vantage point.

Accessing the bikes was really simple. I gave it a try and found it was easy and fun. They have four different spots to pick up and drop off, and a locking mechanism for taking advantage of the shops and restaurants locally, too.

Planning a trip to a larger, more metropolitan city in the future? This is a great way to try out the ever-growing option of touring a city on a bike. You’ll be able to try out the concept itself and learn the ins and outs in a much less intimidating setting. For me, it’s a lot easier to troubleshoot this tourism feature in a city of 30,000 people verses a city like San Francisco which boasts close to a million residents.

According to bluewater.org, “To rent the bicycles, customers download an app on their phone and input credit card information before unlocking the bicycle from the rack. Riders can cruise around Port Huron and return the bikes to any of the 4 port locations.”

The Zagster Port Huron port locations are:

  • Community Foundation of St. Clair County (500 Water St.)
  • Blue Water Area Transit Center (720 McMorran Blvd.)
  • St Clair County Community College (323 Erie St.
  • The Blue Water Convention Center (500 Thomas Edison Parkway)

Not into riding, or if the weather poses an issue, try one the many bus lines. With more than 85 buses, there are more spots and drops than ever to hop on and hop off. The bus schedule provides a number of route options to a bunch of local hot spots. Check out the list of times and routes below to see when you might benefit from riding the wave!
