Biking in Downtown Aurora

The City of Aurora aims to be a bicycle-friendly community and promotes bicycling throughout the city. In downtown Aurora, a green dedicated bike lane protects riders from traffic and connects to major regional trails, sharrows alert vehicles to routes commonly used by bicyclists, and Zagster Bike Share stations offer another way to see downtown.

Zagster Bike Share

To create a more bike-friendly downtown, in June 2016 the City of Aurora recently partnered with Zagster, Inc. to launch its new Bike Share program the first of its kind in the city. This amenity is designed to make downtown Aurora easier for visitors to navigate and encourage economic growth for small businesses, as well as offer residents options for recreation.


Downtown Aurora currently hosts three bike share locations:

  • Aurora City Hall - 44 E. Downer Place
  • RiverEdge Park - 360 N. Broadway
  • Santori Public Library Aurora - 101 S. River Street

Membership and sign-up options
