How much are these GPS-enabled dockless rental bikes? Are they cheaper than UberX?

    $1?!!!!!   THATS SUPER CHEAP.

    ...yeah, but it's heavily subsidized.  These are all start-ups, right?  They don't care about making a profit.

      Yeah, heavily subsidized like Uber.  LOL.

      I am a bit worried about this economy.  Every company is so heavily leveraged, and the competition brings down the cost to unbelievable levels.  I don't even know how much things are supposed to cost. 

      I mean, how much is Uber suppose to be?!

      How far do you plan to go on a bike?  Will 30 minute not get you there?  It's a $1.  The estimate will always be a dollar.

      and it will always be cheaper than any other option.

        Actually, I was thinking about one of those electronic scooters.  $0.15/min vs. $1.00/min.

        Wait, this is interesting.  So a regular cyclist can go about 10-15 mph; let's say 10 because this is likely in a city.

        In 30 minutes, a person can ride the bicycle about 5 miles.  Yeah, that's a pretty good radius.  On an UberX, that'll be at least $10~15.
