TIER Mobility, the world’s largest shared mobility provider, has announced that 120 new e-bikes will be deployed by the end of November across its Fingal shared e-bike scheme. The new deployment will bring the total number of e-bikes in the TIER fleet to over 300.
TIER has also completed the expansion of its business area to cover the whole of Fingal, letting users pick up an e-bike from Balbriggan to Howth.
Since the scheme was launched in June of this year, Fingal residents have cycled over 2,500 hours on TIER e-bikes, and the average trip distance is over 4.5km, a much further distance than the majority of towns and cities that TIER operates in.
Peadar Golden, Ireland Country Manager, TIER commented, “the response we have received since launching our shared e-bike service in Fingal has been phenomenal. The journey times and distances we see are both beyond what we expected, and with more bikes in more areas Fingal residents will be able to leave the car at home more often.”
David Storey, Director of Environment, Climate Action and Active Travel for Fingal County Council welcomed the expansion, saying, “we’re very pleased to be expanding the TIER offering across Fingal to over 300 eBikes. We are also pleased to see that the TIER bikes are working in addition to existing push bike fleets, effectively doubling the number of options available in the county. Fingal residents and visitors have been enjoying this low carbon, convenient and affordable Active Travel option since it arrived earlier this year and we expect to see lots more people give TIER eBikes a try in the coming weeks as their numbers increase.”
