Ride 4 SMILIES (Shared Micromobility for affordabLe-accessIblE houSing), a low-cost bikeshare program, has started in Fort Smith, a community in west Arkansas. Currently, users have access to a fleet of 40 traditional bicycles and eight docking stations across the city. Users can borrow the bicycles at no cost for the first hour of a rental. Beyond that, customers pay for the bicycles for $0.50 per half hour. There are plans to introduce electric bikes into the Ride 4 SMILIES fleet in the future.
