Company Summary

We create networks of smart bicycles that are available to rent instantly for short trips, offering inexpensive transportation and improved mobility for any community. Despite being a fraction of the cost of transit or parking infrastructure, viaCycle can serve thousands of rides per day. Users can access bikes 24/7 with only a phone, and can ride anywhere. Unlike existing systems, viaCycle requires no installation and no infrastructure.
