Ride the Grid
Phoenix has a new bike ride share program with 500 bikes located in 50 locations. This system works with a mobile application. You use the app to reserve a bike, enter the PIN you are given to unlock the bike and away you go. You can even stop somewhere to shop or have a meal by placing the bike in Hold status and locking it to any bike rack. When you are finished, return it to any of the GRID bike racks to lock it in place. The fares are $5.00 per hour or you have the option to subscribe for $30 per month or $79 per year (students, $59 per year).
You can tell from the top photo that the service has already caught on. Many of the bikes in that rack were in use when I took the photo.
