Challenge / Goal
The main idea behind this measure is for the new services to complement Turku’s public transport services. This measure will provide the first bike sharing system (BSS) in Turku.
Furthermore, the objective is to encourage and enable car sharing systems to also be offered in Turku. The first demos have been planned with car sharing providers or with existing car fleet owners like the city, universities and other big car fleet owners.
A pilot BSS, with 300 bicycles and 37 stations, have been designed, procured and implemented.
Relevant milestones accomplished so far are: dialogues with internal and external stakeholders, benchmarking of the BSS, marketing analysis of the car-sharing companies in the Turku area, and baseline data collection.
Furthermore, the Turku city execution board accepted the proposal for the bike sharing procurement in April 2017.The brand Föli-fillarit was created for the BSS. Tendering of the BSSs, marketing and digital services have been carried out.
