Can we stop calling this thing an e-Bike?
“We see the Uber app as moving from just being about car sharing and car hailing to really helping the consumer get from A to B int he most affordable, most dependable, most convenient way,” Khosrowshahi said. “And we think e-bikes are just a spectacularly great product.”
I sound negative, but I am hopeful this will work. I know some bicycle businesses have failed before, but I am excited about the GPS equipped, pedal-assist bikes that can lock themselves.
"JUMP is best known for operating dockless, pedal-assist bikes. JUMP’s bikes can be legally locked to bike parking racks or the “furniture zone” of sidewalks, which is where you see things like light poles, benches and utility poles. The bikes also come with integrated locks to secure the bikes."
