Bike-sharing is a platform that allows individuals to rent bikes for a small fee by using a smartphone app. Users locate the nearest bike via the app, unlock the bike and ride it for an allotted time based on how much they would like to spend. At the end of their rental, users simply park the bike and lock it, leaving it available for the next rider.
The bikes are rented at a price of $1 per half hour.
Mobike, the world’s largest smart-bikeshare platform, has partnered with The Woodlands Township to provide the bike-sharing program. The bikes are powered by unique high-tech features including non-puncture airless tires, bike status sensors and built-in GPS locators. Mobike also provides the smartphone app, which must be used to rent and ride the bikes.
Renting a bike is easy!
Remember, the cost to rent the bike is $1 per half hour. Bikes may be ridden any distance within The Woodlands, but must be returned to Town Center at the end of your ride. There is no need to dock the bike at any specific location; simply park it within the boundaries of Town Center, lock it and it will be ready for the next rider.
Helmets are not provided, but all riders are strongly encouraged to utilize a helmet when riding a bike.
The bikes are designed for teens to adults. They are not sized for children.
