There’s a new way to grab your groceries in the Magic City. Zyp BikeShare, an initiative of REV Birmingham launched in 2015 with support from community partners and sponsors, is preparing to open one of its most anticipated docking stations located along 3rd Avenue South – directly outside Publix at 20 Midtown. The new station will house 15 docking points, allowing Zyp users a convenient grab-and-go parking option for Publix, Starbucks, Chipotle and more!
Work is in progress, and Zyp expects to open the station to the public in the coming days. Stay up to date by checking out Zyp’s Facebook page for the exciting details.
At REV, we also love seeing the added vibrancy on the street as patrons enjoy outdoor dining in our beautiful city. As indoor dining reopens, cities across the country are realizing that ending expanded outdoor dining could mean leaving money on the table.
