Bikes/scooters in San Diego

I was here in April 2018 and my son and I traveled around a lot on OFO bikes, but they seem to be gone now. Any opinions on what are the better ubiquitous bike/scooter rentals in San Diego. I'm wondering about Bird or Lime or MoBike or ... what else?

Yes, the dockless bikes have seen to have disappeared at the electric scooters are multiplying like rabbits! I think the Lime ones seem a bit for "sturdier" but I see a lot more birds in my neighborhood.

I think if you download the Apps of the bike companies they will show you were, if at all, their bikes are in San Diego.

Yes a lot of the ofo bicycles are gone. I noticed a lot of homeless people have bypassed or broke the locking mechanism so perhaps the company decided to get rid of them as a result.

If you can find limebikes those are pretty cool. Some of them are electric powered but even thoughts are rare to find now.

The scooters are absolutely everywhere. The bird scooters seem to always be dead when I attempt to use them. I think the lime scooters might be your best bet.

Not sure why the bikes are disappearing but I know that the police have been enforcing the helmet law. IF you are under 18 you are supposed to wear a helmet while riding. My neighbor's son/16 got a ticket!

When I was at the zoo in May, I noticed a great big line of docks for these. Anyone know if they're still in operation? www.discoverbikesandiego.com/station-map
