WASHINGTON, D.C. – DDOT announced they will extend the dockless bikes program in D.C.

The existing program will now continue through December 2018 with minor changes. DDOT says they plan further changes to the program last year once new regulations are proposed and adopted this fall.

“Mayor Bowser consistently challenges us to think creatively about transportation options for District residents, as we have done for this program. We have learned a tremendous amount about the viability and performance of dockless vehicles through this demonstration project,” said DDOT Director Jeff Marootian.

Officials say users took more than 625,000 rides on dockless bikes and scooters in the D.C. from September to June.
