HOW IS MOBYCY DIFFERENT FROM EXISTING BICYCLE SHARING NETWORKS?
- The majority of existing Bicycle sharing networks have fixed docking stations - permanently installed Bicycle 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 Bicycles mean a cap on the number of available Bicycles and higher costs for the users. We believe there’s a better way-by partnering with local governments and stakeholders, Mobycy eliminates docking stations, creating a broadly distributed system, with Bicycles that are more accessible and affordable to all.Mobycy is a true dockless bicycle sharing service as it allows users to park anywhere in public.
HOW MUCH WILL MOBYCY COST MY CITY?
