Bike sharing in Rome: Good start for Uber Jump

Rome mayor hails success of Uber Jump bike sharing.

Uber's bike sharing scheme, Jump, has got off to a good start in Rome, according to figures announced by the city's mayor Virginia Raggi.

Since it launched in Rome a month ago, the bike-sharing service has recorded 100,000 trips and 30,000 users.

Two weeks ago another bike sharing scheme launched in the city: Greta, which costs less than half of Uber's 20 cent per minute fee.

The arrival of Jump and Greta comes after other bike-sharing schemes bailed out of Europe, with their Rome fleets suffering widespread vandalism.
