Another Dockless Bikeshare Company Comes to Silver Spring


The Montgomery County Department of Transportation has teamed up with Spin, a dockless bikeshare company based in North America, to place 100 Spin bikes in Silver Spring starting Dec. 7.

Spin is the third company to participate in Montgomery County’s dockless bike demonstration project along with LimeBike and Ofo, according to a news release.

“The Montgomery County Department of Transportation is expanding biking options with Spin, the third dockless bikeshare company to participate in the County’s Silver Spring dockless bikeshare demonstration project,” MCDOT Director Al Roshdieh, said. “By making dockless bikeshare available, MCDOT is continuing to increase the range of high-quality transportation choices our residents deserve.”

Dockless bikeshares do not rely on fixed bike stations. Customers use a mobile phone app with GPS to locate a nearby bike and unlock it.

One the rider completes a trip, the bike is parked on any publicly-owned land within the demonstration area.
