The Woodlands Township launched a bike-sharing program in partnership with Mobike, the world's largest bike-sharing platform, on January 5, 2018. Using custom-designed bikes equipped with GPS and smart-lock technology, Mobike enables users to find a bike nearby, reserve and unlock it, all using an app on their smartphone.
The bike-sharing program is the first of its kind in the Houston region. Bikes can be located around Town Center. Users may ride the bikes any distance in The Woodlands, but bikes must be returned to an area within the boundaries defined on the service map at the end of use. After reaching their destination within The Woodlands Township Town Center limits, users manually lock the bike, which automatically makes the bike available to the next rider.
