GRID Bikes are here!
Located right outside both of our locations we have shiny new GRID bikes for rental...if you see new hordes of bright green bikes you've spotted them!
According to the Arizona Republic article:
The city has partnered with two companies to operate the program: CycleHop and Social Bicycles will cover the costs of installing the racks and outfitting the bikes
Renting a GR:D bike is simple: Riders create an account online to reserve and pay for bikes. Bikes can be found at dozens of racks scattered throughout the central city. Or users can reserve a bike online and through a smartphone app.
Each bike is equipped with a GPS-tracking device, so app users can find available bikes and reserve them in advance.
When a rider is done, they can drop the bike off at another GR:D rental location or lock it at any bike rack in the central-city area, for an additional fee. GPS allows CycleHop to track down returned bikes.
Daily, monthly or annual rental passes are available to anyone with a credit card. Prices range from $5 per hour to $99 annually (for 90 minutes of daily use).
