Share and share a bike

These OnzO bikes turned up a couple months ago. Auckland was relatively late to hop on the municipal bike share concept, but OK, better late than never.

The OnzO idea is interesting in that you don’t have to return the bike to a docking station… you just park it, lock it’s self-contained lock, and walk away.

I signed up for the app.

It seemed like there weren’t enough bikes to be really useful in my daily life, and so I hadn’t actually rented one yet.

Then over the New Years break, they added a whole shipment more bikes. I was so impressed on January 2 that I took a screenshot of my route to and from work…

Every yellow dot is a bike… there was one every fifty meters!

But a week later, where did they all go???

Neat idea, but more work needed.
