Tech Innovations That Will Change the Way You Travel: Spokefly

Spokefly: Bike Sharing Meets Airbnb

Like Spinlister, the SXSW-launched Spokefly operates a peer-to-peer bike-sharing model but with a more affordable pricing structure: $30 a month allows members unlimited rentals in any city for up to five hours at a time, and for $80, they can hold on to bikes for 24 hours. Bike owners get paid to add their ride to the system. Using the service is a snap via the website or mobile app: find a bike, check it out, then lock it up anywhere as soon as you’re done. Right now the service is available in Austin with Bay Area and D.C. expansion plans in the coming weeks, and a national rollout to follow.
