Ranked sixth among all cities in the world in the Copenhagener Index 2017’s “friend of cyclists”, Bordeaux boasts 1,160km in cycling paths. The city aims to increase its share of bicycles to 15% by 2020. In this context, INDIGO® weel’s free-floating bicycle mobility scheme adds to the local public transport network, while also integrating itself within the existing cycling infrastructure and services.
The service was launched in close collaboration with Bordeaux Métropole and the City of Bordeaux in early February 2018 and includes over xxx bicycles, as well as a dedicated local team to ensure maintenance and regulation.
To allow for good parking management, the city of Bordeaux’s parking spaces are identified in the INDIGO ® weel app and incentive measures have been developed, including additional messages within the app.
We are convinced that the strength of our system is based not only on the qualities of our bicycles, but also on our operating system. We are implementing the most efficient regulation on the market to maintain our fleet of bicycles and position them in the most appropriate locations in order to meet the demand for individual mobility in Bordeaux.
Paul Valencia, CEO of INDIGO® weel
