Now we're getting e-bikes
On July 28, riders in some areas will be able to test E-bikes with motors that help them ride.
This is part of the expanded bikeshare program. During the month of July, the Rockaways and Coney Island will see bikes that can be rented without a docking station.
Later in the month, Staten Island's North Shore and the Fordham Section of the Bronx will also be a part of the program.
During this test time, the city says it will be evaluating "companies’ compliance with pilot requirements around data accessibility and user privacy."
JUMP Bikes, which was born in New York City, will bring the first e-bikes to Staten Island and the Bronx.
Lime Bike and Citi Bike are also participating in these test areas.
