Online Survey on Durham’s Dockless Bike Share Program Now Open

Residents Invited to Share Their Thoughts through August 5

What do you think about Durham’s dockless bike share program? If you have feedback to share, an online survey is now open to collect your recommendations on the City’s program.

Dockless bike share companies have been in operation in Durham since November 2017. Since then, more than 50,000 trips have been taken on the approximately 1,400 bikes in circulation.

As part of the program evaluation, the City’s Transportation Department is asking residents to provide feedback through an online survey, which will be open from now until August 5.
