There’s a new trend going on in Washington, D.C. known as bike-sharing.
There are five companies operating in the city right now as part of a six-month pilot program.
D.C. is looking at whether bike-sharing should become a permanent transportation option in the nation’s Capitol.
Dockless bikes do not have to be returned to a home base. They are tracked and unlocked using the bike company’s smartphone app.
Riders pay one dollar per hour to use them.
