Public bicycle systems are booming throughout the world and France is placed in 2nd position, with a fleet of 42,000 bikes. Green On, , the specialist in private bike sharing, is now offering a mobile station service to companies and organisations, with a fleet of electrically-assisted shared bikes available to employees or the general public during an event or over a short period of time.
This innovative offer means that professionals can try out the service before investing in it, deal with a temporary increase in visitors or even test a location.
Organisations are won over by the multitude of uses
Several companies are already using the e-bike sharing system provided by Green On. Employees at the Neuflize OBC bank now benefit from a fleet of e-bikes in their various journeys, professional meetings and lunch breaks.
The paid and voluntary workers involved in the Nuits Sonores festival (Lyon), were also able to take advantage of this innovative mode of travel while organizing the event at the beginning of May, including for the transportation of equipment. Julien de Lauzun, Production Manager at Arty Farty (the festival organiser), states: “The service provided by Green On enabled us to travel to our four sites of operation very quickly throughout the festival. The self-service factor, electrical assistance and trailer were a real plus for our teams.”
These bike stations, ecological and autonomous in terms of energy, were developed in association with Advansolar, a company that specializes in intelligent recharging stations powered by solar energy.
Free or paying rental for users
Green On’s e-bike sharing system can be adapted to any economic model. Tourist professionals can thus generate profit, both from renting out their e-bikes as well as via advertising space. An inbuilt pay machine can issue badges in exchange for hourly payment, which can be made with a credit card or cash. The organisation can also choose to make the bike sharing service available for free or with payment. Recently, customers at the Explorers hotel (Marne-la-Vallée, near Disneyland Paris) were able to rent one or several e-bikes per hour, half day or day. This is a value added service that makes all the difference to customers.
For François Schaub, Managing Director at Green On:
“This new service provides added flexibility for organisations that are looking to experiment before investing, or to test out new locations in order to find the most suitable. It is also very useful in dealing with a short-term influx of tourists to a site. The keen interest in mobile bike stations we have noticed from our contacts has strengthened our aim to develop this original service.”
