The City of Fremont has partnered with micromobility operator, HOPR, to launch dockless bikeshare service in Fremont, California. Through this one-year pilot program, 250 HOPR bikes are available for use across the city to anyone 18 years of age or older. The bikes are GPS-enabled and can be located and unlocked via the HOPR Transit app. The per ride cost to rent a bike is $1 to unlock and $0.15 per minute to ride, however riders can also purchase a 30-day or 365-day pass for discounted rates. This bikeshare partnership is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. The pilot aims to offer locals and visitors a convenient, sustainable, fun way to connect with transit and explore the city.
