The Polish city of Rzeszów will pilot the bike-sharing programme
The municipality of Rzeszów in Poland is launching an electric bike-sharing service.
Run by Polish micromobility operator Blinkee, the programme will deploy Vaimoo’s smart e-bikes for the pilot project and then plans to extend the service to other urban centres in Poland.
The smart e-bikes, developed and manufactured by Vaimoo, which is based in Italy, will be equipped with IoT-based connectivity technology that allows vehicles to be easily integrated with the management system of the Polish operator.
The service brings together electric mopeds, scooters and bicycles within a single app.
Blinkee operates in 47 cities and five European countries with more than 6,000 vehicles including mopeds, scooters and traditional bikes. Marcin Maliszewski, CEO of Blinkee, said the introduction of a new generation of electric bikes is a realisation of the concept of multimodal transportation for cities.
He added: “In today’s world the most important values are health and time, and ecological bikes are the easiest and actually the only way to fight smog and traffic jams in metropolises.”

In January, Vaimoo announced an agreement with Swedish micromobility operator Voi Technology to extend and differentiate its e-scooter sharing service in the UK.
“This [latest] agreement gives us the opportunity to collaborate with an important European player in micromobility and represents another step in our growth strategy focused on the development of high-value mobility systems, integrated and tailored for smart cities,” said Matteo Pertosa, founder and CEO of Vaimoo.
