Challenge / Goal
This thriving mountainous region, located outside Salt Lake City, was already home to the Sundance Film Festival, renowned alpine ski resorts, and world-class bicycle trails. Summit County officials were looking for a way to build upon this success and increase mobility options for residents and tourists.
Bewegen’s project approach prioritizes the goals of the client above all else. Our urban planning department began by travelling to Summit County to design a system that maximizes mobility options for both residents and tourists. Pedelec (electric-assist) bicycle technology presented an exciting new way to encourage active mobility and easily conquer the county's hilly trails.
The Bewegen team was so responsive and it was such a quick turnaround in making things happen. That’s not something that you normally see, especially when it comes to government operations, so for us that was a huge benefit in working with Bewegen.
The Bewegen team organized a full-scale event to mark the occasion, bringing together local politicians and community influencers to introduce this innovative new program. The launch marked a significant milestone, as it was the first 100% electric-assist bike share system in North America.
