A combined park and rental station for E-Bikes and E-Cars, first of its kind in the world, is now in use in the residential field. Equipment such as theft-proof boxes, parcel compartments or a charge column for E-Cars is provided by Safetydock.
This project created the first combined park and rental station for E-Bikes and E-Cars in the residential field. The residents of a housing area in Linz are pleased about easy parking, renting and loading directly in front of the entry door. Five theft-proof Safetydock boxes, two of them equipped with renting bikes, are available 24/7 since May 2018. Additionally, a charge column for E-Cars is provided via Safetydock.
In May 2019, a normal E-Bike was replaced with a “Load Tricycle”. This can be used to carry home beverage crates and purchasing from nearby supermarkets. Safetydock is a flexible system and allows to run any E-vehicle.
The requirement of the new system is that is has to be user-friendly. With Safetydock vehicles can be parked, loaded and rented easily just with a card. Furthermore, there is the possibility to check in online to make a reservation in advance.
This innovative project will increase smart and modern mobility in the residential field.
