BikeTrace is thrilled to announce the beta launch of its peer-to-peer bicycle sharing platform. This new website will operate much like an “AirBnB for Bicycles”, where everyone can rent a bicycle from members of that community or make their bikes available for renting. This may in fact be a great way of socializing offline and meet local people through biking.
This concept is also inspired by the growing need to promote environmental sustainability and share economies. Most current bike sharing systems have their standard bicycles with a “one-size-fits-all” approach. There is not much choice when it comes to deciding what type of bicycle you want to ride. With peer-to-peer bike sharing users get to decide what colour, brand, or type of bicycles they want to rent.
Stay tunned over the next couple of weeks as more information will follow.
