Alta Planning + Design has an interesting post on dockless bike share: The Dockless Bike Share Revolution; Is Dockless Bike Share Right for Your Community?

The Social Bicycles Tower Bridge Preview is a dockless system. Designated hubs are created both by geofencing (setting up a boundary for hubs and for the system) and designated bike racks, with a $2 penalty for leaving a bike outside a hub, and $20 penalty for leaving a bike outside the system boundary. But it also encourages return of bikes to hubs with a $1.50 credit. These and other issues are discussed in the post, worth a read.

  1. Hype: Autonomous vehicles will transform cities Reality: Dockless bike share IS transforming cities, as we speak

    Agree/disagree/not sure?…

    I’m laughing a little, because I don’t necessarily think that AV won’t also transform cities. But it is interesting to me how the “real” revolutions tend to come on strong, quickly, without warning, and without much fanfare, with all the commentary and criticism playing catch-up. Uber rings a bell.
