Inspiration

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.

  1. Established bike share companies as well as individuals can collect money via bike sharing and bike rentals
  2. This encourages sense of ownership to discourage vandalism
  3. This builds on top of existing underused infrastructure instead of flooding the market with oversupply from competition
  4. This collects data on bike usage in order to guide bike share and rental companies in their expansion strategies
