CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — Many Americans have a love affair with their car. But in today’s modern world a trend has emerged to find the next best sustainable transportation solution.

Companies across the globe have come up with clever ideas for things like bike sharing.

One thing we want to address is how other companies are trying to re-invent the wheel so to speak and have been having a tough time doing so.

For example, we’re talking about those Bird Scooters that were banned in the City of Charleston and confiscated by Mount Pleasant Police last week.

The motorized scooters have also been seen dumped in the ocean near Santa Monica, thrown from buildings, burned and tossed in the trash.

There is even an Instagram account called Bird Graveyard that chronicles the short lives of these scooters.

But under the right conditions, mobility services do work. The Gotcha Group operates a mobility service in cities and college campuses all over the country.

They are leading the pack in this industry with a successful bike-share program that is thriving right here in the Holy City.

We spoke with CEO Sean Flood to learn more about the local program and why he believes ‘Holy Spokes’ is so successful.
