WARREN, Mich. (AP) - General Motors Co.’s Tech Center is starting a bike sharing program for the 19,000 people who work at the suburban Detroit site.

The Detroit-based automaker says the program will allow workers to commute on and off the Tech Center campus in Warren.

GM is working with Zagster, a private bike sharing company that has developed similar programs for other locations. Employees can use Zagster bikes stationed throughout the Tech Center to travel between its 61 buildings around the 330-acre site.

To participate, an employee registers online, then reserves a bike through text message or a smartphone app that provides a bike access code. Each bike comes equipped with a basket that can be used to transport a laptop and other small belongings.
