The 2013 Pilot


The OBI 1.0 Bike Share Pilot on Intel’s Ronler Acres Campus was launched on July 8th, 2013 as a way to address the need for alternative transportation options on a corporate campus located in a suburban setting. The pilot concluded on September 30th, 2013. ¬†Over the course of 3 months, over 300 participants took over 1,100 rides to, from and around Intel’s Ronler Acres campus. To secure and check-out the bikes, OBI debuted an innovative low-technology approach to bike sharing dubbed OBI 1.0 (not to be confused with our “OBI 2.0” GPS-enabled smart locks, still under development, with pilots planned for 2014). ¬†Documentation from the 2013 pilot can be downloaded here.
