Urban bike-sharing programs are more popular than ever, and on-demand transportation firm Lyft is building on that momentum with its latest shareable two-wheeler. An electrified pedal-assist bike offering up to 60 miles of range (double that of older shareable bikes), Lyft’s new model—which can be charged at docking stations—was developed to withstand more journeys with fewer battery swaps, meaning lower operating costs and reduced environmental impact. Lyft’s team put safety top of mind too, with features like retroreflective paint to keep riders visible at night. The new bike will roll out across Lyft’s markets in the coming months, starting in Chicago. —Alex Fitzpatrick
