Dockless bikeshares have been popular in Seattle. Very popular.
Sure they've been waylaid by pranksters and vandals, but on the whole, the city has welcomed the bikeshares with open arms.
Where Pronto's docked bikeshare service spun out, the glut of dockless options -- LimeBike, Ofo and Spin -- have taken over Seattle; the city reportedly serves 22 percent of the nation's dockless bikeshare bikes, with some 10,000 cycles rolling around town.
And now our suburbs will get a cut of the action.
The city of Mercer Island is conducting a three-month pilot program with bikes, bringing the dock-anywhere bikes to the Island starting mid-July. The bikes will all be of the electronic-assisted variety, and though they'll be stocked at key "hubs" they're able to be parked at any legal, public location, just like Seattle bikes.
