How many bikes can EarthBike deploy per city？
This varies by the size and density of a city. When we partner with a city, EarthBike designs and executes an on-the-ground operation plan that is specifically tailored to each community. We want to integrate, not overwhelm, into existing transportation designs.
How is EarthBike different from existing bike sharing networks?
The majority of existing bike sharing networks have fixed docking stations - permanently installed bike racks spread out over a city These cost cities millions of dollars to maintain and operate, so stations are few and far between. Additionally, limited bikes means a cap on the number of available bikes and higher costs for the users. We believe there’s a better way- by partnering with local governments and stakeholders, EarthBike eliminates docking stations, creating a broadly distributed system, with bikes that are more accessible and affordable to all.
How do I end a ride?
First, please make sure you’re parking in a safe, appropriate location. Dockless bike shares only work if we all take responsibility and park in places that don’t block car traffic, impede pedestrian access, or encroach on private property.
How do I reserve a bike?
Unfortunately you can’t reserve a bike. We decided early on to make EarthBike first come, first serve. So if you see a nearby bike on the map, it’s yours to ride!
Where does EarthBike operate?
EarthBike provides the most affordable and city-friendly bike sharing network available. We aim to improve urban mobility and reduce congestion, unshackled from public subsidies for operation and expensive docking stations.
