Dockless bike sharing in Tempe
TEMPE, Ariz. (February 8, 2018) – Dockless bikes are a new type of bike share program that began operating in Tempe in December. The city is looking into the legalities of the bike rental companies’ use of public rights of way as well as city property.
Dockless bikes lock themselves and do not require a rack or station. Users of these bikes are encouraged to avoid blocking public rights of way or parking bicycles on residential properties, at bus stops or in alleyways.
Tempe’s official bike share vendor is GRID, operated by CycleHop. Launched in May 2017, this docked system provides another alternative to residents and visitors for getting around the city with ease. Since May, users have taken over 20,000 rides on the 300 bicycles located in Tempe.
For any questions or feedback regarding dockless bikes, please contact the companies directly:
