University of Brighton commuter trials

The last of the bikes are being returned this week after 2 very successful trials with staff from the University of Brighton. The first trial participants collected their bikes at the end of June / early July and over the following 2 months the participants were able to take advantage of the wonderful summer weather. In September the bikes were returned, serviced and sent out again with the second tranche of participants.

The first trial participants collected their bikes at the end of June / early July and over the following 2 months the participants were able to take advantage of the wonderful summer weather. In September the bikes were returned, serviced and sent out again with the second tranche of participants.

40 members of staff took part in the two trials; the participants were based in all 3 of the university’s Brighton campuses which are spread across the city. The project team would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved.

An enormous amount of data and information has been collected during these trials; we will now be busy collating and analysing this rich source of material and preparing the project report!

Community trial 2 and the Bikehanger

The Smart e-bikes project is pleased to announce that the Smart e-bikes project at the University of Brighton has funded Brighton’s first Bikehanger, an on-street lock up, in a residential neighbourhood in Brighton. The Bikehanger incorporates 6 spaces and initially 3 of these will be used by the project for a community trial. Two sets of local residents will participate in the trials; the first 3 people have taken their bikes and will be using the bikes over the next couple of months.

On 7th September, the local residents association, Drara, posted the news about the Bikehanger plus new parking spaces for twelve more bikes. These spaces had been installed following discussions between Drara and relevant authorities and were funded as part of an ongoing initiative to integrate local transport.

Once the trial use is over, the Bikehangar will be handed over to the management of Drara with spaces available to rent for nearby residents.
