Mobike Launch in The Woodlands
Mobike, the world's largest smart-bikeshare platform launched operations in The Woodlands. Mobike's operation in the Township is Houston Metro's first dockless bike-share program.
The Woodlands Township Chairman of the Board Gordy Bunch said a bike-share program makes great sense for The Woodlands. "The Woodlands is a health-conscious community and features many great outdoor activities for fitness with more than 200 miles of pathways and more than 130 parks," he said. "There are so many great places to see and visit by bicycle. We're pleased Mobike wants to launch its first concept in Texas right here in The Woodlands."
Using custom-designed bikes equipped with GPS and smart-lock technology, Mobike enables users to find a bike nearby, reserve and unlock it, all using an app on their smartphone. After reaching their destination within The Woodlands Township Town Center limits, users manually lock the bike, which automatically makes the bike available to the next rider.
