The 'Dropbike' App Lets Users Locate & Rent Bicycles Using Their Phone

Dropbike is an innovative new bicycle-sharing app and startup, launched in Toronto, that is designed to make it easier than ever for transient bicycle users to locate and use bicycles on an on-demand basis.

What's great about this smart bicycle-sharing service is that it doesn't require users to worry about clumsy membership cards or keys. Rather, users can simply use the Dropbike app to view a map of available bicycles, choose a bicycle and then receive a code that allows them to unlock their bicycle of choice and rent it for the excellent price of only $1 per hour.

By empowering users to pay for bicycles depending on how much or how little they use them for, Dropbike is well and truly introducing the advantages of the sharing economy to the urban cyclist who doesn't own a bicycle but wants to use one every once in a while.
