I remember Portland, Oregon’s first bike sharing program. They bought a bunch of bikes, painted them the same garish color, and put them out on the streets. Predictably they all disappeared and changed color.
That was before cell phone apps and the technology that locks them down until they are paid for. But till recently, bike and scooter sharing has mostly been a big city offering. Now there’s a company, Koloni, that is offering the service on a much smaller scale.
