Bike Share/Scooter Share
Looking for an active alternative to driving in downtown Orlando? Dockless bike share and scooter share options are available. Bikes and scooters provide convenient “last-mile” connectivity, making these services an environmentally friendly complement to public transit. Most companies offer smartphone applications that riders can use to locate a bike or scooter, unlock it, and pay for the trip.
