PROSPERITY innovation brief on Regulating dockless bike-sharing schemes

Within the PROSPERITY project, Mobilissimus prepared a summary on regulating dockless bike-sharing schemes, which undertakes – due to the rapid development of technological solutions and business models – to give a snapshot of the state of August 2018.

The bike-sharing (bike hire) concept has been available for decades, but since the turn of the millennium such systems have spread across the globe and have become part of the sustainable mobility offer for many cities. These schemes traditionally provide public hire bikes at bike ‘docking stations’ throughout the city. With the rapid development of technology and new business models, dockless bike-sharing providers have emerged and boomed in the second half of the 2010s, with especially high penetration in China. However, their rise in cities globally did not exploit the full potential of the concept in improving mobility, and has also caused negative externalities, which made necessary for cities to develop regulations.
