Revision as of 22:19, 5 January 2020

Dockless bikes and scooters are vehicles operated as part of a dockless mobility service (or shared mobility service), in which the service operator stages vehicles in a variety of locations for prospective users. Bikes and scooters are dockless when there is no designated location (or “dock”) to which the bike or scooter is returned. Upon completion of a trip, the user leaves the vehicle parked where it may be used by someone else. The first dockless e-scooters were deployed in Charlottesville by December 2018 as part of a pilot program.[1]
