Bluegogo In Usa

"The bike can be said to be the best partner of the city," said Robert McPherson, co-founder of 

Baas Bikes. "If you do it well, no piles will be a big revolution in public transport. "


Baas Bikes is a shared cycling company headquartered in Washington, DC, and aso early, Baas Bikes 

chose to start accumulating users on the university campus.


There is no doubt that China, both in urban public bicycles, or now sharing the field of bicycles, 

have gone far more than the United States. In foreign media, sharing bicycles do not need to 

specify the characteristics of parking pits to give users a more seamless experience, far better 

than the traditional public bicycle system, such as Chicago Divvy to be much more.


Sharing the freestyle of the bike also allows the local government to invest in the construction 

of better bicycle facilities, but also allow users to enjoy cheaper bike service. However, this 

set of shared bikes in China's fire mode, like all innovative models, has been questioned by the 

US government's public transport sector.


In the US market, there are already two shared bike companies, from China in San Francisco, the 

operation of the small blue car Bluegogo and the Austin operating in the US company Spin, was the 

United States related agencies questioned complaints, and then Uber almost the same The


"There is no objection to the innovative concept of sharing a bicycle without a pile, and the 

authorities are opposed to the security threats to the local public transport order and the 

disrespect of the local government's behavioral attitude," Heath Maddox, San Francisco "When these 

companies do not respect regulation and can not guarantee quality, the problem arises," explains a 

planner and project manager.


Heath Maddox is also a member of the Board of Directors of the North American Bike Share 

Association. The North American Shared Cycling Association is a nonprofit organization that 

promotes the development of shared cycling, dedicated to technological innovation and the 

expansion of shared bicycles. Of course, this association only supports companies that follow the 

rules.


"The San Francisco Department of Transportation is supportive of innovation," he said, "but the 

method must be done and can not cause adverse effects on the local."

The city shares the next form of the bike


For the United States to share the bike start-up companies, the time to enter the market has 

matured. In this decade, shared bicycle technology has been popular in the United States, there 

are now 55 shared bicycle platform, 42,000 shared bicycles in some US cities operating in the next 

few years this number will have a more significant growth (titanium Media Note: US shared bicycles 

include bikes such as Chinese urban bicycles.


Without the cost of parking piles, no piles shared bikes can grow more quickly, spread, so that 

shared bicycles can reach every corner of the city, saving money for users. Currently small blue 

car Bluegogo in the United States charges $ 0.99 per half hour, Spin is half an hour for $ 1.


In Heath Maddox's view, there is no technical innovation, but rather focus on existing technology 

for new concepts. The largest bicycles in Porto, Oregon, and the Arizona State Department of 

Phoenix's shared cycling system have been fitted with solar panels for their smart bays to allow 

these bikes to park at designated parking piles.


The traditional shared bicycle system is designed to specify the parking piles in order to be able 

to better monitor and repair their bicycles. The US-based piling-free cycling platform says their 

unbonded bikes are designed to avoid the embarrassing scene of the parking piles where the parking 

pits are full and promise to park the traffic anywhere in the traffic hazard or to block the 

traffic to the right place.


According to Derrick Ko, co-founder of Spin, a US-based bike start-up company, Spin has a 

professional technical team to do traffic and public transport data analysis to more effectively 

deliver shared bikes. He believes that through the right means of delivery, Austin will become a 

huge shared bicycle market. Spin plans to put 100,000 bicycles this year in the United States.



"This is the ultimate solution to the last mile problem," Ko said. "Here we are talking about a 

choice of transportation that everyone can afford."


Some start-up companies play the funny tricks with the concept of sharing bicycles. McPherson's 

shared cycling company Baas (Bike As A Service) does not even provide real bikes. This unique 

shared cycling company is currently only run at James Madison University in Virginia and the 

University of Salisbury in Maryland.


Baas's shared model core is a smart electronic lock. This looks like a gray thermos lock for any 

bicycle on almost any. According to McPherson, their sharing model allows universities to purchase 

their own bicycles, and even allow students to own the bicycle can also join the shared team, but 

also a way to use the old bicycle.


"We want to give the bike to the people who need it," he says. "Our service fee is lower than any 

other sharing model."


Traffic planner Heath Maddox supports the development of shared cycling technology as well as the 

development of non-pile-sharing bicycles, arguing that piling-free bicycles are more able to 

penetrate every corner of the city than a shared bumper, but at the same time, The mushrooming 

business model has its own doubts. In his view, the maintenance costs of non-pile-sharing bicycles 

include the daily cycling rearrangement and illegal parking of the transport of bicycles, which 

makes him feel is not very reliable.

Sharing the twists and turns of the Great Wall, China into a lesson


The question of sharing a bicycle without a pile is largely from China's shared cycling market. In 

China, such as Beijing's big city, it is not difficult to see colorful scenes of colorful bicycles 

that accumulate on the road.


China is a cycling country, but also an active hug of economic sharing, but such as the worship of 

and the sharing of these bicycles platform in the domestic market crazy expansion, not only people 

feel garish, but also to the United States to share the development of cycling with vigilance heart.

 Just a horse, it has been more than 20 cities in the country put about one million bicycles.

McPherson believes that China's crazy shared bicycle market benefited from China's strong cycling 

culture, as well as the government's determination to solve haze and pollution. In addition, 

China's complete manufacturing industry for the shared bicycle industry continues to provide 

expansion of power. Most of the world's bicycles are made in China, for the domestic shared cycling

 company, to build a number of thousands of vehicles is just a week for a week.


But the popular shared bicycle has gradually exposed a lot of problems. No piles share the rapid 

growth of bicycles, but the corresponding supporting bicycle facilities did not keep up with the 

maintenance of the huge fleet is also no solution. In Beijing, sharing bicycles in some areas like 

cancer cells like the traffic jam, piled into a colorful bike hillside.


"In China, we see the strategy is simple and rude brutal expansion, these shared bicycle platform 

does not care about the development of bicycles and traffic, they want is to get the venture 

capital of the money," Maddox pointed out. "In the United States of San Francisco and Austin, we 

also saw similar signs."


China's shared cycling platform has begun to play the idea of overseas markets, to enter the US 

and British markets. Matthew has entered Singapore on March 21. In the United States to pay off 

the small blue car Bluegogo, in China has put 13 million bicycles.


According to a small blue car Bluegogo spokeswoman in San Francisco, Bluegogo operates in North 

America and China is completely different.


"We will not copy the pattern in China," said spokesman Lindsay Stevens. "We will not allow the 

sharing of bicycles at random on the streets, as in China as lawless."

Walking ahead of San Francisco


In the United States, part of the skeptics of a pile-free shared bicycle comes from the 

interference of new business models: technology companies tend to cut directly into the market and 

are reluctant to wait for the local government to introduce appropriate regulations and regulatory 

systems for new business models. In the first camp of the United States, San Francisco, the city 

had gone through the regulatory chaos that Uber and Lyft had brought before.


Heath Maddock introduced to the Blue Blue Blue Bluegogo first started in the beginning of January 

this year in San Francisco began operations, and did not get the permission of the local 

government. Bluegogo tried a different strategy after the local traffic department complained 

about random parking: Bluegogo bought 19 private car parks and set them into shared bicycle 

parking spaces to deal with Complaints from government departments.

"The problem is that I do not have control over these bikes," says Heath Maddox. "We do not want 

to kill this technological innovation, but for a city like San Francisco, a fair competitive 

environment is When we consulted with the traditional cycling platform Motivate in San Francisco, 

we received a protocol for periodic cycling redistribution, as well as partial security, 

maintenance standards, and a system that complied with existing rules.


Bluegogo's presence in San Francisco was also condemned by some local politicians who saw 

Bluegogo's sharing system as a security risk and accused other technology companies of turning a 

blind eye to regulators, such as Uber's lack of permission in December last year The case of the 

delivery of the unmanned vehicles.


In Austin, Spin also has a similar encounter. Spin debut in the southwest south of the General

 Assembly, but then the city was temporarily stopped, that Spin's shared bicycle may block the 

sidewalk.


"It's not twice a time, and these arrogant technology companies are always a pre-emptive attitude, 

they always ask questions after the request to forgive, to get the permission of the relevant 

departments." San Francisco city supervisor Aaron "This is the first time San Francisco has made 

a preemptive strike in this contest," said Peskin told the San Francisco business magazine.


San Francisco on March 24 passed a new set of laws and regulations, the establishment of a 

pile-free shared bicycle system audit system and the relevant rules. The new regulations will take 

effect at the end of April.


In the small blue car Bluegogo spokesman Lindsay Stevens view, the outside of Bluegogo's operation 

has misunderstood. "If there is a user illegally parked a bicycle, we can take the bike to the 

public park area, which is a very simple thing," she said.


Lindsay Stevens said Bluegogo is advocating a healthy way of traveling, dedicated to bringing 

shared bicycle services to the traditional shared bicycle platform in San Francisco without 

coverage to the area, so that shared bicycles can serve more people.


Bluegogo is currently charged at a low cost of $ 0.99 for half an hour, cheaper than the 

traditional platform Motivate, she added. Motivate is held by the car giant Ford, offering a 

shared bus service for a pile, charging $ 9 a day for service charges. Bluegogo has canceled its 

$ 90 deposit threshold in the United States, making it easier to use.


"We did not expect to take a long time to review the shared bike, but we would be happy to work 

with the local municipality," said Lindsay Stevens. "San Francisco is a technology center where 

everyone wants to start them Of the project.We want to show to other cities that the relevant 

legislation is valid and if we can be successful here, then we will not have problems in other 

places.


Lindsay Stevens said Bluegogo had stopped operating on March 28 and would soon have removed their 

shared bikes from San Francisco's streets, awaiting San Francisco's new regulations and approval 

mechanisms. Bluegogo hopes that the review approval mechanism will be able to return to the market 

quickly after the end of April and plans to put hundreds of bicycles in San Francisco in the 

spring.


Heath Maddox received a notice on March 31 that Bluegogo had stopped operating, but when he opened 

the Bluegogo app he could still see the little blue car all over the city.


"Their bicycles are all over San Francisco and have not completely packed up their mess," he said 

at last. "It's not going to get a license from the current share of the new shared bike company 

Easy. "
