Motorcycles Citi Bike rival e-bike service 'JOCO' to launch in Manhattan next week
Daytona Bike Week Is on for 2021
City agrees to issue permits with some restrictions for March 5–14 event.On January 20, the city decided to allow for permit and rally business applications for 2021 Daytona Bike Week. Some of the main drivers in their decision were the fact that this year marks the 80th anniversary of the Daytona rally, and local bars and restaurants volunteered to reduce their occupancy by 40 percent; with that the commissioners felt comfortable enough to give a thumbs-up to the event despite lingering concerns over the pandemic. This year’s big two-wheel bash on the beach will also run its usual 10-day course, unfolding from March 5 to March 14.
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A fleet of electric bikes that will rival the city's Citi Bike program is set to launch across Manhattan next week.
Starting next week, JOCO bikes, a privately-run transportation start-up will have thousands of e-bikes available for rent at 30 privately-owned locations, according to its founders.
JOCO’s e-bikes will charge passengers $1 to ride plus $.25-cents a minute,
costing less per-ride than a single trip on a Citi Bike and offer riders unlimited 45-minute trips at $49 a month.
Its bikes docks will be located on private properties like residential buildings, hotels and offices.
Unlike Citi Bikes which require a worker to replace and recharge batteries every night, JOCO bikes recharge at their docking stations and riders are able to reserve bikes in advance.
Citi Bike currently has 4,500 juiced-up bicycles around the city but JOCO’s founders anticipate expanding an additional 800 e-bikes and 100 docking locations by the fall.
