Where Have All The Dockless Bikes Gone?

“Dear PoPville,

This question has been bothering my husband and I for weeks. While I know many are not fans of the dockless bike systems (limebike, ofo, etc) we both were. We don’t have space to store bikes and we loved being able to pick them up anywhere around our house in Dupont and drop them anywhere. So now the question, where have they all gone? It feels as if they have all been replaced by scooters but we are not in the market to be “scootbros”. We just want to be able to grab bikes at random around the city again, it felt like such a tease. Do you by chance know what happened with them? Is it just me or are they all being replaced by scooters?

Thanks for any information you can share with a former casual biker.”

You are right!! I can’t find it, (can anyone? Textdoc?), I saw a tweet a while ago saying that since the number of bikes and scooters are limited during DDOT’s Dockless Bikeshare Demonstration Period, that Lime decided to add more scooters since they were so popular. Since they added more scooters they had to reduce the number of bikes. Have others noticed a scarcity of the dockless bikes? What about the other companies?
