Urbo Announces Strategy to Work with Existing Bike Schemes

September 18, 2017 - 2 minutes read

Urbo becomes the first dockless bike sharing provider to establish a strategy for working with existing bike share providers.

Many cities already have bike sharing systems operating successfully in their cities. The expansion of these systems has often been curtailed due to the capital required for expansion. With technology now moved from the stations and its related infrastructure to a web-based app and smart lock system, connected through the Internet of Things (IoT), there is huge scope for growth in the city’s bike systems.

Key Points of the Strategy Include:
• A tailored “real time” bike redistribution model specifically for cities with existing bike share platforms.
• Designated parking areas near the most outward bike share stations to expand the reach of bike sharing in a city.

Urbo’s framework is designed to ensure both bike sharing systems work in a manner that is mutually beneficial for both parties, and most importantly the area’s inhabitants. As a result, neither systems compete but rather work together to benefit all users, giving flexibility to the users.
Brian McGovern, Co-Founder at Urbo said – “Dockless bike sharing systems and stationed bike sharing systems can successfully co-exist. Each system can complement the other. Our team of urban planners have put in extensive work to ensure we have this strategy, and that it will successfully enrich a city’s urban mobility”.
