The first 100% electric offer in Kortrijk
Smove.City will offer Kortrijk, a city of nearly 80,000 inhabitants, a fleet of electric bikes that can be accessed 24/7 via a smartphone app. Over the past few decades, Kortrijk has transitioned from a major industrial capital to a town focused on the service sector. With an all-electric service, Smove.City aims to get as many citizens as possible onto saddles, regardless of age or fitness. Several shared mobility services have already emerged in Kortrijk, so there is little doubt that this new electric option will be adopted quickly by the population.
The mobile app allows users to locate, reserve and then unlock any available electric bike in the city - and payments are made securely through the application. Once in the saddle, the user is automatically accompanied by electric assistance tailored to their speed, thanks to a torque sensor located in the pedals, and they can also take full advantage of in-app GPS guidance to get to their destination as simply as possible.
