Free-Floating Bike Share Parking 101

The Free-floating (Dockless) Bike share pilot is going well and rolling into the third month. There are now three permitted privately-owned free-floating bike share companies permitted to operate in Seattle.

Here are some useful tips for bike share users on where to park free-floating bike share bikes:

  • Free-floating bike share bikes can be parked in the planting strip area of the sidewalk (as long as they aren’t blocking curb ramps, bus stops, benches) or at an SDOT bicycle rack.
