    Pros: 

    - Exactly the amount of energy I want to spend commuting

    - Price is fair

    - Can reserve a bike and do not risk getting there and not getting

    Cons: 

    - Typically a ~10 min walk to a bike if you live on a hill

    - Anti-hub model is great, but it doesn't 'guarantee' there will be a bike close

    Biiiig fan of JUMP. Been riding it almost every day since I joined (SF). The app is intuitive and helpful.

    The basket is awesome - I can take my sweater and backpack off and put them in the basket and don't end up with a sweaty back when I get to where I am going.

    This morning I used a BIRD scooter because there wasn't a JUMP bike close enough. For now that is a-ok, but I much prefer JUMP because it wakes me up a bit and I enjoy biking.

    Kind of confusing: the price is $2 per 30 mins but then tax is added on top of that so if you look at payments it will say $2.17 or $4.34 or something.

    Dylan S has used this product for one month.

JUMP was acquired by Uber for ~$200M, which wasn't too surprising with previously rumors swirling and the JUMP + Uber partnership that was announced last month. Here's a good video from @titoyooo:
Those in SF and Washington DC have seen these bright red bikes littered around the city (along with several other bike and scooter rentals), which for residence is causing frustration. I saw a photo of a Bird in a garbage can the other day. 😝 Personally, I'd prefer to fly around SF.

@rrhoover Ryan ‘The CEO’ is such a great guy too. So glad to hear of such a solid outcome for him and the company. That was a fun day.

I used these a lot this week in Washington DC and they are a blast!

How does the ride on these Jump bikes compare to LimeBike? I tried an electrified LimeBike this afternoon for the first time and it was as fun as eating a wet sandwich. In fact, the ride was so unenjoyable that instead of going for a jaunt on the Bay Trail I rode straight home.

I've seen how "manual" bikes are being abused here. How exactly does JUMP, which I assume electric bikes will cost much more to produce and maintain, prevents/mitigate such an issue?

Every time I've seen a story about rent-a-bikes, the biggest problem seems to be that they all stack up in one area - people ride to work, and take the train home. I remember seeing trucks constantly driving trailer loads of bikes around in Brisbane when they tried it there. Is that something that's a problem in other markets?

@rossdcurrie Perhaps people could be hired to return them? Just like how Uber hires drivers to drive around? That could be a solution right?
Duarte Martins@duarteosrm · Founder, thenoocoffee.com
@rossdcurrie Sounds like that could be resolved with an incentive or with trucks driving them back at night.

@rossdcurrie @duarteosrm Seems the companies should pay people to ride them back. Maybe there would be a way for the homeless to earn money for doing a bit of bike riding in the late evenings.
