This May, a fleet of 40 self-service electric bikes, distributed between 7 ultra-compact stations, will be made available to citizens at any time of day or night through a mobile app (iOS and Android).
The ‘Ti Vélo’ service is the result of an ambitious policy to develop cycling in a territory that is putting more and more emphasis on active modes of transport. This scheme will enhance the existing public transport network, offering yet another alternative to cars in a bid to improve quality of life.
Companies in the area will have the opportunity to submit requests to the city to have the stations installed near their businesses, which would allow their employees to benefit from discounted prices in a bid to make taking a self-service electric bike a part of their daily routine.
An innovative system designed in France
To design and implement the service, Landerneau turned to Fifteen, an innovative French company whose mission is to develop the use of bike-sharing across Europe. Fifteen manufactures connected electric bikes unlock-able via an app and compact, cost-effective charging stations that thrive in tight spaces - thanks to a revolutionary inter-bike docking system. Fifteen currently operates popular schemes in the south of Paris and in Bordeaux, and equipped independent operators with their technology to pilot operations in Paris and Grenoble.
