Lyft Wants To Improve Baltimore Transportation With Bike Sharing

Lyft Wants To Improve Baltimore Transportation With Bike Sharing

Uber’s biggest U.S. competitior, Lyft, has recently thrown in a $270,000 chip into a bike-sharing program in Baltimore. The fund will increase the number of share stations in Baltimore from 50 to 55. The funds will be enough to run the stations for three years, according to TechCrunch.

The idea is a unique solution to urban mobility’s tricky last mile. These bike stations can become Lyft pick-up points when destinations are too far away for foot travel.

The Baltimore Bike Share system is wholly owned by the city government and it provides cheap and effective transport in Baltimore. The system also owns the biggest fleet of electrical-assisted bikes in the USA. Unlimited rides per month cost $15 while riders can choose to pay $2 per trip. Lyft riders can also avail a free first month on the Bike Share System.
