The City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County have just launched a city-wide survey to ask resident’s about their new ‘dockless bike sharing’ program.
According to the city, “Dockless bike share is a new bike share model that allows users to rent a bike from virtually anywhere through a smartphone application, and park it when their ride ends. Dockless bike share companies are emerging in cities across the country, including the City of Charlotte. In response, the City of Charlotte has started a Bike Share Pilot Program to test the viability of dockless bike share in the Charlotte community.”
The program includes 4 separate dockless bike companies, ofo, Limebike, Mobike, and Spin. Since the program first launched this past November, Charlotte has seen over 10,000 people take over 40,000 trips on dockless bikes.
The city has asked us to help distribute their online survey to help determine if the dockless bike program will continue, and what changes should be made to it.
