The Social Bicycle System
The Social Bicycle System (SoBi) is a public bike share system that uses GPS, mobile communications, and a secure lock that can attach to almost any bicycle and lock to any regular bike rack.
This system will be more affordable and scalable than existing bike share systems and can be deployed in a wider range of settings - small cities, universities, and even corporate campuses. SoBi will allow a user to find and unlock bikes using a mobile phone and provide a viable public transportation alternative.
The SoBi team is currently prototyping the lock box design which, we will test in New York City this fall. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
