bike share

Contact information to report bikes in share programs

The City of Mesquite is working to address bikes left in our community from the use of dockless bike share programs. Dockless bike share programs allow a person to rent a bike by downloading an app, locating the nearest bike and unlocking it for their use. Once riders are finished using their rented bike, they are allowed by the companies to leave the bikes anywhere. Bikes are being left in random places, cluttering sidewalks and creating public safety hazards. If you see a bike from one of these companies that needs to be picked up, please use the contact information to report the bike. View the contact information.
