Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - The bike-sharing program in Rochester is working to get back on track after hundreds of bicycles went missing in the last few months.

Earlier this month, Zagster reported that a number of Pace bikes were out of service due to a combination of theft and misuse.

The city has been working with the company to recover the missing bikes and bring in new bikes.

"We have been able to recover a number of bikes," Mayor Lovely Warren said Friday. "The Rochester Police Department has been able to recover a number of bikes that were stolen and we continue to work with Zagster and pace to recover the bikes and bring more in."

Warren said all the bikes should be replaced within the next two weeks.

Zagster said it is rolling out tech and engineering enhancements to protect against any more theft or misuse. That includes improved location services, and more in-depth education materials.
