Through a new partnership with Johnson County Park & Recreation District, RideKC Bikes will be available in several parks throughout Johnson County starting on Monday, June 1. This new system features a first-of-its-kind pedal bike model that operates in a hybrid “dockless” format. Bikes are located at hubs in each park, which can be found using the Drop Mobility app.
The parks-based system allows users to scan a bike to check it out, ride it safely and following local regulations, and then return it at any authorized hub location. Every bike has both a cable lock that wraps around a fixed object and wheel lock that automatically closes through the rear wheel, ensuring responsible parking. The first ride for new users is free; after that, bikes are $1.00 to unlock and $0.10 per minute.
RideKC Bike is providing enhanced sanitation methods to ensure rider safety with every maintenance check, movement between hubs, and repairs.
