Cycling is one of the most efficient modes of transportation possible, but isn't catching on.
What it does
NOT yet another bicycle share startup. A platform for bicycle share startups, rentals, and advocacy. Makes greener and more equitable transportation.
- Established bike share companies as well as individuals can collect money via bike sharing and bike rentals
- This encourages sense of ownership to discourage vandalism
- This builds on top of existing underused infrastructure instead of flooding the market with oversupply from competition
- This collects data on bike usage in order to guide bike share and rental companies in their expansion strategies
