Uber's bright red Jump bikes will no longer be seen on the streets of San Diego and Atlanta.

The company has confirmed that it will soon withdraw its ride-share bikes from the two cities. During the summer, both San Diego and Atlanta have received regulations on shareable bicycles and electric scooters.

The company's bikes are also temporarily unavailable in Providence, R.I., according to Uber spokesman Matthew Wing. The company also joined bike sharing in Dallas and San Antonio earlier this summer, after announcing that they would be closing in Staten Island, N.Y.

The move comes at a tough time for Uber. The company laid off more than 400 workers earlier this week as the car sharing company continues to struggle financially.

At the same time, there have been clashes in many communities over shareable electric scooters and bicycles from companies like Uber, Bird and Lime. Neighborhood advocates say the bikes and scooters clutter cities and cause public safety concerns. Some communities have banned the use of these scooters and bicycles at night.

Uber's Wing cited regulatory costs as part of its decision to discontinue operations in San Diego.
