Since August, the Jump Bike rental service is available in Mexico City. Users can rent these electric bicycles from the Uber app by selecting “Bicycle” in the platform. This option is an alternative to move faster between city traffic.
Users can unlock the bicycle lock with a code that will be offered from the application and park them later in the service area.
Mexico is the first city in Latin America where Uber presents this service that is already available in various parts of the United States and Europe.
Jump service areas
Uber bicycles are available in polygons in the city such as Polanco, Juárez, Roma-Condesa, Cuauhtémoc. The cost of the service is 10 pesos per unlock and 3 pesos per minute of bicycle use.
In addition to bicycles, Jump also offers scooter service. However, the current regulations of Mexico City prevent them from providing this service.
There will be almost 5K bicycles in the city
On August 2, 2019, the Secretary of Mobility of Mexico City (SEMOVI) began the process to offer annual permits for operation of bicycles without anchorage.
A total of 4,800 bicycles without anchorage will be available in the city, with the presence of Motum, Jump, and Dezba.
The promotion of this sustainable transport is part of the Strategic Mobility Plan 2019.
Semovi has worked collaboratively with the anchorless bicycle companies to carry out this regulation, which can provide them with certainty to make their investments in the capital.
