Bike-share in the desert? Seems improbable — and kind of sweaty — but together with the Middle East’s top ride-hailing company Careem, and Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), we’re making it happen. Starting in 2020, the Emirate will be home to Careem Bike, the region’s first large-scale electric bike-share scheme. It will feature 3,500 of our E-FIT bikes, as well as 350 smart stations. The e-bikes have an autonomy range of up to 70 km and a central motor that propels rides up to 25 km/h.
Dubai’s taken steps to improve mobility infrastructure in recent years through a network of cycling lanes, with plans to more than double these dedicated thoroughfares by 2030. We think the E-FIT is the perfect vehicle to help the city’s residents and visitors take advantage of these efforts. While Dubai’s topography is relatively flat, the e-bike will give riders a boost when temperatures soar, reducing the amount of energy required to pedal.
