Wheels joins the roster of companies competing in Atlanta's mobility wars.

Another e-bike company launches in Atlanta Friday

Another company has entered Atlanta’s expanding mobility wars, offering electric bikes for rent.

Wheels, a California-based company, will begin offering dockless e-bikes for rent in Atlanta on Friday. The company already offers the service in Los Angeles and San Diego. 

Customers will be able to use the company’s app to unlock the bikes. Wheels says that, unlike other companies, it offers “swappable replacement parts and removable batteries resulting in real-time dynamic maintenance upkeep.” 

The company adds to Atlanta’s growing roster of app-based mobility services. Uber began offering e-bikes for rent in Atlanta in January.

Several companies also have launched electric scooter service in Atlanta over the last year, though local governments are struggling to regulate the devices.
