LimeBike said its 250-watt motor scooters have a 37-mile maximum range. They cost $1 to unlock and 15-cents per minute to ride.
Waybot’s electric scooters in D.C. are currently priced at $1 plus 15-cents per minute and have a 20-mile range.
The District’s demonstration project is designed to determine if dockless bike sharing will be allowed to remain in D.C. and how those business would be required to operate. The individual private companies operating and maintaining the dockless bikes are not part of Capital Bikeshare.
D.C. generally favors dockless bike sharing so far, District Department of Transportation told WTOP, even though dozens of bikes have been stolen and there are complaints about the bikes being left in the middle of sidewalks or other public spaces.
