DC Seeks Feedback on Dockless Bikeshares

    Three companies, LimeBike, Spin and Mobike, announced plans to bring their dockless bikeshare services to DC sometime after Sept. 20.

    The D.C. Department of Transportation is surveying the public for feedback on the dockless bikeshare program that started last year.

    DDOT is seeking opinions from people who use the dockless bikes and those who don't.

    “This survey is an important part of the next phase of our evaluation of the dockless program,” DDOT Director Jeff Marootian said. “We want to hear feedback from everyone who will be impacted as we consider the future of mobility options in the District.”

    Dockless bikes can be unlocked using a smartphone app. Riders can open the app, scan a code and hop on the bike. When you are finished, most systems require you just lock the back wheel and walk away.

    The survey is open until June 1.

    DDOT extended the dockless pilot program through August to collect data during the warmer, bike-friendly months.
