Stockholm announces new e-bike sharing service operated by Citybike Global with VAIMOO smart vehicles

 CityBike Global, the leading Spanish micro-mobility company, part of the Moventia Group, operating in Europe and Latin America with more than 30,000 vehicles, announces the signing of the agreement with the municipality of Stockholm to implement the new city e-bike sharing service.

For Stockholm, which is expected to be one of the largest public e-bike sharing service in Europe and among the largest in the world, CityBike Global has chosen VAIMOO as a strategic partner for the provision of smart electric bikes. Already active in major green mobility capitals such as Copenhagen, Rotterdam and the UK, VAIMOO will supply over 5100 smart e-bikes, entirely developed and produced in Italy and connected to CityBike’s technology platform.

The launch of the new e-bike sharing service in the Swedish capital will provide the city with thousands of new vehicles, efficient and sustainable thanks to the recycled aluminum frame and the fast swappable battery with large capacity. Available all year round, 24 hours a day, in station-based mode, the e-bikes will be connected to a flexible management system that can be integrated with existing systems and will reduce urban clutter by enabling virtual stations where vehicles can be parked after rental. The Stockholm e-bike is a version of the CES 2021 awarded VAIMOO e-bike, specifically adapted to meet the city mobility needs.

Jordi Cabanas – CityBike Global CEO highlighted: “we are proud of being selected as partner by the City of Stockholm to run this strategic service which will provide an alternative active mobility to the citizens of Stockholm. This new CityBike project reinforce our European leading position in public micro-mobility services.”

“This agreement brings VAIMOO e-bikes into another world capital of cycling” – said Matteo Pertosa, CEO and Founder of VAIMOO – ” Partnering with CityBike Global in the Stockholm project is a great pride both personal and for the whole VAIMOO team, constantly committed to the design and implementation of complete and easily integrable sharing systems for an alternative, sustainable and inclusive mobility”.
