Lyft’s electric bicycles across the U.S. are getting a boost.
Unveiled Wednesday, Lyft’s next generation e-bike has a new look with an LCD screen and built-in speakers, a bigger battery, and wider seat that’s easier to adjust. Lyft designed the bike in-house after acquiring the bike-share company Motivate in 2018.
Motivate had bike programs like Bay Wheels in San Francisco and Citi Bike in New York City, which Lyft has continued to operate with the same bicycles from before the acquisition. But the new bike design incorporates some distinctly Lyft features, like the mustache pattern on the handlebar grip if you look closely.
