USNewsCo - Austin rental bike, scooter rules debut to mixed reaction by companies

NetChoice, a trade association of eCommerce and online businesses, says the rules would make it “nearly impossible for dockless bike providers to run a viable service for city residents.”

“If Austin had the choice back when they started their docked bike-sharing system, the city would surely have chosen dockless over docked bikes,” said Steve DelBianco, president of NetChoice.  “The ATD proposal flies in the face of good city planning and customer service. Dockless systems are far less expensive to implement, and serve residents in neighborhoods that are never going to get a docking platform.”
