Dynamic duo Jonny and Jonny started JOCO with rentable, electric assisted bicycles housed in private locations, using a network of docking stations. The vast charging infrastructure network will power the future of micro-mobility this April, with exclusive long-term leases already secured at hundreds locations across NYC.
JOCO is launching in April and by June will be in 100 locations with 1,000 bikes. Unlike other operators, JOCO’s e-bikes charge at the source, eliminating the need to replace batteries while minimizing downtime. The company is a pioneer in the sustainability sector– The Jonny’s found a need in the market after they realized the dockless model is unsustainable, unsafe, has heavy maintenance costs and charging problems.
JOCO’s electric assist e-bike is safe and easy to use for anyone who can ride a normal bike. People can use the bikes at over 100 locations across NYC to get to work, school, or just for a joyride. You can reserve your bike in advance, and load it into a dock, which also charges the vehicle.
