NYC Gets Interest from 12 Companies for Dockless Bike-Share Pilot

NYC’s DOT has gotten offers from 12 companies to bring dockless bikes to the city. Dockless bikes are shareable bikes that riders don’t have to return to a docking station. Instead, riders use an app to locate the nearest bike, and leave it wherever when they’re done. Right now, Citi Bike is the only bike-share program in the city. The docks are mostly concentrated in Manhattan which is why the city wants to pilot dockless bikes in the outer boroughs. However, people also have concerns. [[SBs]] [[Chris Tewes]] “I could see some people who are a little careless, maybe putting it in the way of a store or something like that. I could see that being a problem too.” [[CG]] Companies that expressed interest in doing a dockless pilot: JUMP lennybike LimeBike MetroBike Mobike Motivate (Citi Bike’s parent company) ofo P3GM Pace (subsidiary of Zagster) QuimoCycle Riide Spin Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen said they would choose one or several companies by early May.
