Downtown Minneapolis commuters can now benefit from an innovative new program—ZAP Twin Cities—designed to track, encourage and reward them for commuting by bicycle. Get Tagged. Get Zapped. Get Rewarded. It’s that simple.
ZAP Twin Cities is a completely automated biking incentive program that uses radio frequency identification tags and readers to log participants’ biking trips into downtown Minneapolis, downtown St. Paul and the University of Minnesota campus. Bike commuters are rewarded for reaching trip milestones, earning prizes like bike accessories and gift cards.
Downtown commuters can join the program by getting a ZAP tag attached to their bicycle. Bicycle trips are automatically logged when a rider passes within 30 feet of one of several ZAP readers placed along key bike routes into downtown St. Paul, downtown Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota campus. Cyclists hear an audible beep when they pass a station, and ride data is automatically uploaded to the ZAP Twin Cities website.
Stop by our ZAP tent in front of the Young Quinlan Building at the Nicollot Mall Farmers Market and get your ZAP tag!
All registrants must have their bike present to register for ZAP Twin Cities.
