It looks like they have two stations at Jacksonville and Atlantic Beaches, but not a lot of bikes, unless they're all being rented out right now. The app seems to be available, at least.

Any update on swarm at the beaches?

Now that dockless bikeshares are taking over, there's no reason Jax's urban core shouldn't be getting in on the action. Should be very low-hanging fruit. Spin is now in Doral, FL. I plan on giving it a try very soon.

Zagster is in St. Lucie County now. Jax is 100% out of excuses.

Was curious about that too. Given I got not much better to do with half the state being snowed in today I see that according to their website this is a thing but only one damn bike is available(!) Also noticed there are so many of these services out there in so many different communities. Even with city state and federal grants and sponsorship it just seems some of these companies are begging for a buyout. I'm still pissed that Hoboken established a nice hourly bikeshare program with total coverage of the entire city while Jersey City next door decided to do New York's Citibikes program that only allows you to rent for the day month or year.
