WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) – A bike share system at Purdue University is getting ready to expand on campus and to downtown Lafayette.

The (Lafayette) Journal & Courier reports the original bike share program at Purdue had 50 bikes across 13 stations when it began last August. The program is adding 20 bikes on campus system, plus 15 bikes for downtown Lafayette and has proposed adding bikes in West Lafayette.

Purdue University bicycle operations coordinator Aaron Madrid says since its inception, about 1,100 riders have taken the 50 bikes on more than 23,000 rides.

Purdue manages the contract with Zagster and promotes the program. Zagster maintains and monitors the bikes.
