The Unipol private electric bike sharing network in Bologna is expanding. the important headquarters in via Larga, where the well-known Unipol skyscraper stands out, makes an important introduction of charging and parking systems for new e-bikes within the prestigious dedicated design structures. An initial installation of 3 Evo bikes for the proprietary fleet plus a bar dedicated to charging private ebikes. 16 charging points completely manageable through key rings and Rfid cards that allow rapid extraction of the vehicle to reach the city center and above all the other Unipol offices through the beautiful cycle network. The network of stations in Bologna is therefore not only a welcome service for employees to move comfortably to their home at the end of the shift or during the lunch break. Much more: the Bologna model (but also at the Florence offices) also allows mobility between offices which, given the traffic levels still present in one of the most important cities in central Italy, speeds up travel between offices without the need to use cars or public transport.
For this reason, this Unipol Sharing Company can and must certainly be cited as a model to follow for administrations and for all entities that deal with Mobility. A success given by the appearance of robustness guaranteed by the products in the field, from the In-Presa charging systems to the EBikes of the partner FiVE srl which also add to the entire success the right level of design that cannot be missing for a prestigious reality like Unipol.
The stations and their capacity for widespread use are therefore perfectly placed within the vision of the “Unipol Tower” complex, a complex built with great attention to ecological sustainability, so much so that it has obtained the “Gold” level in the LEED – Leadership in Energy certification. and Environmental Design.
The simultaneous installation of two other EVO bars, one for 4 charging points with relative EBikes, the other for 4 Shucko charging points, will be tried again.
