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
