Uber has introduced electric JUMP Bikeshare Service in Atlanta. It will be the company’s newest, most technologically-advanced models. According to new release, the new bikes will move at speeds of up to 20 mph.
Its features include a front phone mount for easy access to navigation, replaceable batteries to keep the bikes in use longer, and a cable lock to secure the bike to bike racks or street furniture.
To access JUMP bikes, riders simply pull up the Uber app and scan the QR code on the device. JUMP is offering free rides for 15 minutes on their e-bikes and scooters in Atlanta through January 27. Otherwise the bikes cost $1 to start and 10 cents per minute. Uber is also offering reduced pricing to low-income users.
Jen Shepherd, JUMP general manager for the southeast said “the electric bikeshare program has the potential to ease congestion in Atlanta by bridging the gap between traditional bikes and cars.”
Uber is also offering free helmets for anyone who signs their safety pledge.
