Where did we find JUMP Bikes?
On our trip to California we met JUMP Bikes both in the Santa Monica and in San Francisco, it goes without saying that we tried the electric bikes and of course we look forward to seeing them in Europe and why not in Athens (after Berlin which is probably the first city to launch the partner electric bikes of Uber!
A few words about the electric JUMP Bikes
Jump bikes are electric (assisted movement), so even in the most difficult cases such as the hills of San Francisco you will move faster than ever!
How does JUMP Bikes work?
- FIND Open the Uber app and select Bike & Scooter from the top menu to locate and reserve a JUMP bike or scooter nearby.
- RIDE Enter your PIN on the bike or simply scan the QR code on the scooter to unlock. Put on a helmet and go.
- PARK Lock bikes to a bike rack and park scooters on the sidewalk keeping them out of the way of pedestrians and other vehicles.
Ride Safe! Ride Smart!
Ho much is the cost of use?
The cost in San Francisco is $2 for 30 minutes of use! What can you do in 30 minutes? Just take a ride! Commute to and from your workplace! To move from a point of public transportation to your destination where there is no public transportation! Or you can even discover whole cities like we did in San Francisco! We grabbed JUMP bikes from the Financial district of San Francisco and experienced the city like a local up to the Golden Gate Bridge! Wonderful and unique experience, relaxing and enjoyable ride since you can stop to enjoy the view whenever you wish without worrying about parking!
Uber and JUMP bikes towards an environmentally friendly lifestyle
The carefree feeling of having the chance to use a bike everywhere in a city without any worries is really great and we cant wait to ride those bikes again and again!!
Hey Uber Greece! We look forward to have those JUMP Bikes in Athens soon!! San Francisco has chosen environmentally friendly and active transportation has managed to reduce the use of individual cars, the traffic in many US cities and the parking burden already, what about us travellers? What will we choose?
