As one of the initiatives of uYilo in demonstrating various e-Mobility modes and concepts, a fleet sharing scheme using electric bicycles (eBikes) has been deployed at the Nelson Mandela University North and South Campus.
The sharing scheme allows staff and students the opportunity for use of intercampus transport by use of eBikes available in the fleet. Each eBike charge station supply power is generated via solar which provides a renewable energy source towards a green transport solution. The online reservation and monitoring system is being developed within uYilo which will provide ease of reservation of the service to all users. The project has included a locally engineered and developed solution incorporating multiple local suppliers and manufacturers.
