JUMP (Website) is Uber’s new electric bike share system, and it’s coming to Orlando.
Uber-users will be able to rent an electric bike using their Uber app by selecting “bike”
But despite the above photo, they haven’t officially launched yet.
JUMP Bikes has submitted an application to pepper 500 bicycles around Orlando and City
A JUMP spokesperson admitted that while they were still working with the City of Orlando on launching locally they expected to launch some time in the next week or so.
Prices for JUMP rentals vary from city to city with an Austin JUMP costing $1 for the first 5 minutes and .15 cents for each following minute versus $1 to unlock and .10 cents a minute in San Diego. The price for Orlando riders is yet to be released.
Dockless bike share is proving to be popular in Orlando as Lime just hit 50,000 local rides last week according to City spokesperson Karyn Barber, in a total of just 87 active operating days. On Valentine’s Day, there was a total of 964 rides in a single day.
