This e-bike sharing service allows anybody to build app-activated electric bicycles. Lock&Charge is making a move in the tourism industry by giving businesses a way to host e-bike infrastructure. The instant e-bike sharing will be particularly disruptive in cities with considerable traffic congestion where hiring a car isn't always the best option for visitors.

Lock&Charge offers fleets of lightweight e-bikes and charging stations that are secured and powered with an app-unlocked hub. The app also has tracking features, so users can remember where they kept their bike. This is particularly helpful for customers who are travelling and aren't familiar with the area.

The system works for existing bicycles and other electric vehicles such as scooters.
