What is Cycling’s Climate Impact ?April 21, 2022 — PBSC insights
Bogota’s residents and tourists alike will be able to take advantage of an extensive bike share system, which includes 1650 E-FIT electric bikes, 1650 regular FIT bicycles and 300 Smart Stations.
In a press release announcing the city’s new system, Nicolás Estupiñán, Secretary of Mobility, shared that the Bogota bike sharing program will stretch across a 27km area that includes Usaquén, Chapinero, Barrios Unidos, Santa Fe and La Candelaria. With an equal number of regular and electric bikes, the micromobility system in the iconic city seeks to have a long-term positive impact on the local population and the environment.
The urban sustainable transportation project is the result of a partnership between the District Mobility Secretariat (SDM), PBSC Urban Solutions, and Tembici. The system is set to begin its operations as of Fall 2022.
“I am especially proud of this project, which was a proposal in a pioneering format in the world. I am sure that bicycles will be even more present in the routine of the entire population, contributing to more efficient, economical and non-polluting trips, making the city of Bogotá even more democratic and better for everyone”, highlighted Tomás Martins, CEO and co-founder of Tembici.
“It is with great pride in the PBSC team and in our partnership with Tembici that we take on this latest micromobility system implementation. We have full confidence that we will see the same great impact on environment, on transport and on people’s health and happiness, that we have seen in over forty cities around the world up until today. Bogota is an incredible city, a true wonder of the world with a great cycling culture, and we are excited to be part of their story and their success.” Gian-Carlo Crivello, CRO at PBSC Urban Solutions.
