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.
Pedaling in Dubai can be difficult. Not because of the slopes, as the terrain is mostly flat, but because of the high temperatures. The E-FIT bike has a rider-friendly design and was created with an innovative, ergonomic technology. The electric pedal-assist is perfect to ride along the gorgeous cycling lanes, no sweat.
