Gotcha is to deploy 1,000 electric bikes across southern California this summer in a bid to improve air quality and reduce vehicle usage.
The agreement with the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments in the US state, and covers 15 municipalities, including Pasadena, Pomona and El Monte.
Riders will be able to use the Gotcha app to locate bikes at mobility hubs throughout each area and have the option to pay on a daily, monthly or annual basis.
Steps are already being taken to improve air quality in California. Last December, the California Air Resources Board approved a statewide regulation which will require public transit agencies to gradually transition to fully zero emission buses by 2040.
