Dallas, TX- A peek over the Ronald Kirk pedestrian bridge reveals an abandoned Ofo bike share bike on the bank of the Trinity River. Dallas's bike share problem reached its peak in early 2018 with nearly 18,000 bikes strewn about the city clogging walking paths, roadways and medians. Bikes being discarded into ditches, waterways and trees even inspired a dedicated instagram page to the carnage of the failed experiment. By late June, Dallas City council passed regulations that required companies to obtain permits for their operations, sparking most companies to bolt from the market.
