Dockless Bikeshare

Dockless Bikeshare does not rely on fixed bike stations. Customers use a mobile phone app to locate a nearby bike with GPS. 

Montgomery County has signed agreements with dockless bike share companies to conduct a demonstration project in  Silver Spring. See  map of area . When a customer completes a dockless bike trip, the bike is parked on publicly-owned land within a specified geographic area. See map  of preferred public parking areas in downtown Silver Spring.

Questions? Contact the bikeshare companies directly.

Feedback? General feedback about the dockless bikeshare demonstration program or about a specific company is welcome. Send an email to mcdot.commuterservices@montgomerycountymd.gov , or contact MC311 either online or by calling 311 from within Montgomery County or 240-777-0311 from outside the County.
