Wheels is dedicated to bringing safe, low-cost, environmentally-friendly transportation to communities around the world. We’ve reimagined micro-mobility to make it more accessible, safer, and more convenient than ever before. Everything we do is designed to deliver an exceptional experience for riders worldwide.
We require all riders to be at least 18 years old with a valid ID card to ride.
WHY WHEELS IS SAFER AND EASIER TO USE
Wheels is more accessible than a standard bike thanks to its electric motor and pedal-less design. With its lower center of gravity and multiple touchpoints, it is safer than accident-prone scooters. Its unparalleled stability is due to a 14-inch wheel, allowing you to navigate uneven surfaces with ease. Additionally, we’ve made numerous safety-first design decisions, including dual disk brakes for better stopping power, automatic lights for high visibility anytime, a padded seat for comfort, and an integrated smart helmet system on select models. All of this makes the Wheels form factor an industry leader for safety and ease of use.
WHERE TO RIDE
Ride in bike lanes when available. Please do not ride on the sidewalk. You can ride a Wheels bike as far as you want. A fully charged Wheels can ride up to 30 miles.
Please do not take a Wheels bike on other forms of transportation such as cars, buses, trains, etc. Please be sure to also consider the no ride/parking zones before shutting off your bike.
WHERE TO PARK
Please park your Wheels with respect for pedestrians and your fellow community members.
We encourage Wheels riders to park near public bike/scooter corrals or accessible public locations that do not cause an obstruction of the sidewalk. Wheels should never be parked in a gated location or compound, in underground parking garages, or other locations that would make it difficult for another user to access them. For the safety of others, Wheels should not be parked where they can block driveways, doors, or other pathways.

Ratings and Reviews
activation fee = bogus & Unnecessary but the $ per minute is worth it.
Honestly, the dollar should be imposed on a minimum minute usage basis on the back-end. Think about it...if my bike runs out of juice or if my trip is longer than most, I have to pay that fee again and again!? What if your bike just freezes, I have to eat that fee!? And what, I’m gonna really chase you down for a single one dollar issue?! You guys are smart but let the people eat CAKE! !! CHARGE THE ONE DOLLAR SAUSAGE FEE ON THE BACK END IF CUSTOMERS DO NOT USE THE BIKES FOR A MINIMUM OF YOUR TOTAL COST @ ur BREAK EVEN POINT. just sayin...until then, 4-stars. I am deliberately trying to not pull off two stars for this issue. Ok. Enjoy. The bike is pretty darn fun guys and it’s much faster then those cheapie little scooters that break your hands from hitting Los Angeles potholes with concrete tires. You know what I’m talking about! And you guys want to level up with the cheapie scooter company’s and charge the EXACT SAME FEE FROM FRONT TO BACK!? Cmon be original!
Company will put your life at risk
I was excited to try this company just like many others. Unfortunately there’s not enough reviews when it comes to the customer service of this company. First off the battery on their bikes is terrible. The battery will last you about 1 hour if you’re lucky. They then want to charge you a fee to replace the bike for another one which is just as bad as the first one. My bike was unfortunately stolen and well this company doesn’t even have a phone number you can reach only email.... so be ready to get an answer after three days or more. I waited on the cops that night and they basically told me that I needed to get the value of the bike from the company in order for me to be able to make a police report. The company after responding 5 days later completely dismissed that. They instead sent me the location of where the bike was at and told me to go retrieve it. They wanted me to put my life at risk to get this rental back. The location was at a projects.... what was I suppose to do? Knock on every apartment till I found the bike? The company as a whole are callous towards their customers. I don’t want anyone else going through the experience I went through which is why I’m speaking up. Thank you for reading.
Battery and software problems
There were about ten bikes lined up down the block from my downtown Austin apartment. I figured they must all have just been charged and dropped off… wrong. We activated 5 or 6 bikes to find a second bike that had close to half a charge.
Even with two bars of battery, once you get going the charge drops way down. The bikes barely had enough power to make it over a gentle hill. After two blocks one of he bikes stoped working, so we found another. After a mile and a half, the replacement bike stopped working. That left my Partner on foot while I went looking for another replacement. None were to be found, so we decided to give up.
I parked my bike and swiped to end the ride, but the app froze, it took me about three minutes to get the app to end the ride.
The app clocked 19 minutes and a distance of 3 plus miles for $8. In fact I had actually traveled 1.5, ridden under 10 minutes, and wasted 8 minutes on battery and software issues. I’ll stick with a scooter next time. Faster, more reliable, more fun and less frustration. Just my first and last experience with wheels.
