Uber’s Jump e-bikes upgraded to make charging easier

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com

Jump, an Uber bike-rental company, has upgraded its electric bikes to include swappable batteries which it says can be changed within a few minutes.

Riders can use a front dashboard underneath the handlebars to unlock the bike as well as a phone mount for easier navigation.

The bikes now feature a retractable cable lock to offer riders more flexibility when locking a bike to a rack or structure, the company adds.

Last year, Uber announced its plans to launch its Jump bikes in Seattle as part of a strategy to bring together more modes of transport and allow app users to choose different ways to reach their destinations.
