    Default Live, work, or walk in Rosslyn? Tell VT Planning students what you think of dockless

    Shoulda thought to share this here sooner:

    @VTNCR @VTMURP students are studying dockless e-bikes and -scooters in @RosslynVA and their impacts—whether you've ridden one or not, please tell us what you think.

    Take our survey (by 4/24): https://virginiatech.qualtrics.com/j...rbQgnbDKeFwaUZ
    I and Planning classmates at Virginia Tech's National Capital Region center are studying dockless devices—yes, they're mostly scooters now, but we're also interested in thoughts on dockless (e-)bikes—so if you spend any time in Rosslyn, please take our survey and let us know what you think of them.

    The survey is anonymous, but there's an option at the end to enter your email for the chance to win one of four $50 gift cards as thanks for your input.

    Well, this thread is over two years old now. DC announced today that they're limiting dockless scooter operators to just 4 for 2020 but the total number of devices will increase 60%. Bolt, Bird, Lime and Razr Scooters will no longer be permitted in 2020.

    Jump, Lyft, Skip, and Spin will be permitted to operate scooters. Jump and a company called HelBiz will be permitted to operate dockless bikes.

    Well, it's been nearly 5 years since dockless bikeshare came to the DMV and much has changed. Helbiz recently started placing e-bikes in Alexandria. Unlike other bikes, they appear to have a mid-drive motor with an IGH in the back. The wheels had solid rubber tires like the old Mobikes did. I didn't try one out because it looked like it was small like the original dockless bikes.
