Uber acquires bike-sharing company jump.

How about a two-wheel Uber ride instead of four? The company is buying a bike-sharing service called Jump.

The move gives Uber access to Jump's 12,000 dockless, GPS-enabled bikes.

Because they're dockless, the bikes can be left at any rack when riders reach their destinations.

The bikes remain disabled until the next user unlocks them by using a code on their smartphone.

Jump is located in 40 cities across six countries.

It's not here in Houston, but the agreement with Uber could eventually change that!
