Cambridge Independent: Electric bike hire

Electric bike hire is coming of age on city's technology parks

On August 26th, Mike Scialom, writing in the Cambridge Independent described Cambridge Electric Transport's electric bike service.

The pilot service, funded by Cambridge Science Park, was a huge success. More than 50 staff members from 20 different companies tried the free Electric Bike service from Longstanton.

The scheme is expanding to include other North Cambridge Business Centres such as the Cambridge Business Park, St John's Innovation Centre and Allia Future Business Centre. The article interviews managers at Allia Future Business Centre on King's Hedges Road.

Cambridge Electric Transport plans to expand this service, aiming for 16 pick up points, and over 1,000 bikes by Spring 2019.

There will be three payment methods:

  1. Riders can pay for the service: by day, week or month
  2. Your site can pay, e.g. Cambridge Science Park already has an account
  3. Your company can pay for your use

There are three reasons to support this service, it:

  1. Is sustainable transport
  2. Offers traffic relief for the city
  3. Frees up valuable parking space in company car-parks
