NEWARK - Residents in Newark looking for a way to avoid taking the bus will have a new opportunity thanks to the first Bike Exchange opening in the city.

The exchange allows people to donate unused bikes and volunteers from the Boys and Girls Club fix them.

The reconditioned bikes are resold at very low prices ranging from $10 to $20 for a kids bike and $40 to $120 for an adult bike.

Founder Russ White says some of the money is used to support the Boys and Girls Club.

Mayor Corey Booker was on had for the grand opening, saying he is thrilled to see the shop open.
