ELVITEN deploys 75 e-Bikes in Bari

ELVITEN demonstrations have gone live in Bari!

Bari is the second most important economic centre in the South of Italy, with around 325,000 inhabitants. Its port is considered the largest passenger hub on the Adriatic Sea and attracts over 500,000 passengers annually. A large university city with hot and dry summers and mild winters, makes it a lively city full of history rich with the diversity of migrants and a younger crowd.

The city of Bari is almost completely flat making it ideal for the use of electric light vehicles (EL-Vs). The Regional Plan of Transport for 2015-2019 shows that the main mode of transport used by citizens is cars or vans (52%), followed by motorcycles (22%), public transportation (18%), and bicycles (5%). The aim of ELVITEN is to deploy 75 e-Bikes and raise awareness through the #LetsGoElectric campaign to upscale the use of more sustainable modes of transport.

ELVITEN project partner Politecnico Di Bari (POLIBA) has teamed up with S3Transportation to bring 75 Rad Power Bikes to the southern Italian city. 60 EL-Vs will be assigned as a corporate leasing scheme to the Polytechnic University of Bari, Acquedotto Pugliese of Bari, Port Authority, University of Bari, hotels and bed and breakfasts. The target users will be the employees of each company as well as tourists. Each company will provide parking spaces and charging points, and selected users will be granted short term use. 15 EL-Vs will also be provided to private agencies and fleet owners for rental services (including small parcel deliveries).

Interested participants can register at Selected users are then guided through the ELVITEN unifying app and given an e-Bike that can be used to explore the city using the Elvigame. Like the demonstrations occurring in Malaga, users receive incentives and have access to e-Hubs where they can charge and store their e-Bikes. The black boxes placed on the e-bikes will collect and store useful information that will help ELVITEN create guidelines for integration of EL-Vs into the urban transport system.

ELVITEN Goes Live in Trikala!

The ELVITEN registration point in Trikala is ready to welcome users!

The city of Trikala is situated in the Northwestern part of Thessaly, Greece. Home to around 82,000 inhabitants, the Greek city experiences warm summers and mild winters. With a historic city centre and close proximity to an important UNESCO world heritage site, Trikala is a city with a lot to offer.

Although the city does not suffer from severe congestion due to its medium size, it still experiences congestion during peak travel times. The main points of congestion within the city are around the three bridges that cross the river passing through the city centre. While local public transportation provide an economic option, it does not deliver last-mile solutions to the city centre. In an effort to have fewer cars in the city centre, local authorities promote green mobility and work to expand the usage of Electric Light Vehicles (EL-V’s). ELVITEN focuses on establishing a shared network 10 EL-V’s (5 e-tricycles and 5 e-quadricycles) provided by Swiss manufacturer Kyburz.

Citizens interested in testing out an EL-V can visit the ELVITEN registration point and meet with an ELVITEN Trikala operator. After checking the relevant documents, accepted users are then registered and guided through the ELVITEN app, which is used to book the EL-Vs. Once a vehicle is booked, users receive the keys from the ELVITEN Fleet Manager and pick up the vehicle from designated parking spaces. Data and trip information is collected via black boxes which will be used by ELVITEN to analyse and propose guidelines for integration into the transport system.

ELVITEN has began operating in Trikala since February of this year and open to the public since April. Interested citizens can visit our Youtube page to learn more about how they can get involved!
