A fully electric bike share solution is the right fit for Dubai’s futuristic, connected lifestyle.
Bike-share in the desert?
Seems improbable — and kind of sweaty — but together with the Middle East’s top ride-hailing company Careem, and Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), we’re making it happen. In 2020, the Emirate will be home to Careem Bike, the region’s first large-scale electric bike-share scheme.
“We are pleased and excited to launch the first-of-its-kind multi-phase program in the region. We extend our gratitude to all community stakeholders who played a significant role in supporting the initiative and helped us provide our services to the residents and the visitors alike.”
Dubai’s taken steps to improve mobility infrastructure in recent years through a network of cycling lanes, with plans to more than double these dedicated thoroughfares by 2030. We think the E-FIT is the perfect vehicle to help the city’s residents and visitors take advantage of these efforts. While Dubai’s topography is relatively flat, the e-bike will give riders a boost when temperatures soar, reducing the amount of energy required to pedal.
