RideKC, BikeWalkKC, & Drop Mobility e-bike pilot, Kansas City, MO, 2018
5 minutes Date Launched: Nov 30, 2018
RideKC (the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority, KCATA), BikeWalkKC (a bicycle/pedestrian advocacy nonprofit), and Drop Mobility (a shared electric mobility provider) have partnered to roll out electric bikeshare in Kansas City. The “RideKC Bike” program has soft launched the e-bikes as of November 30 and will continue to increase the number of hubs and bikes available over the next couple months. The bikes can be located via the Drop Mobility app and rented for $2 per hour or $5 per day. At the end of a ride, the bikes should be locked to a designated bike rack or existing bike share station. The new e-bikes work parallel with the existing bikeshare program and offer an easy, efficient, transportation alternative for locals and visitors.
