Floating Fleet – Feasibility Study for a Floating Fleet Operation in the e-bike rental system by electronic bicycle locks

The e-bike rental system of the model region of the larger metropolitan area of Graz (Graz Bike) is currently not suitable for a free floating operation, whereby usability and attractiveness for potential users are insufficient. The overall objective of the project is to research the feasibility of a Floating Fleet for Graz Bike via a retrofit electronic bicycle lock (e-cylinder) incl. a smartphone control app for booking and using. Within the framework of a pilot phase a few prototypes will be built in order to test suitability for practical application as well as potential transferability to other model regions.
