London-based shared e-bike operator HumanForest has announced a new partnership with leading Mobility-as-a-Service app Citymapper.
The partnership will enable users to locate the nearest available HumanForest e-bikes across London through the Citymapper app.
Users will also be able to plan journeys, view suggested routes and travel times, then navigate to their destination using real-time turn-by-turn directions.
HumanForest has a fleet of 800 e-bikes in London, with rides free for the first 10 minutes and costing 15p per minute thereafter.
The operator will also launch the UK’s first rental e-moped service in 2022, starting off with 100 devices available for hire from January.
“We are delighted to partner with Citymapper, helping Londoners map out the cleanest and greenest routes around London,” said HumanForest co-founder Michael Stewart.
“This partnership will make our truly green e-bikes even more accessible and help to encourage affordable and sustainable transport in London. With users able to find our e-bikes through Citymapper, the process of planning journeys and navigating across London will be easy and streamlined. This partnership will allow Londoners to get around the City in a quick and environmentally-friendly way.”
Citymapper has a number of similar partnerships with micromobility operators including Lime, Dott, TIER, Bird and Spin.
“Micromobility is key to making cities more sustainable and we’re excited to partner with HumanForest, who offer a convenient and eco-friendly way for Londoners to travel around the city,” added Ravi Jolly, Partnerships Manager at Citymapper.
“Our partnership makes it easy for Londoners to find the nearest HumanForest e-bikes, plan journeys, and be guided to their destination in real-time with turn-by-turn directions and voice instructions.”
