Residents and visitors to Bath will be able to hire electric bikes to get around the city from this summer.
Bath & North East Somerset Council is introducing electric bike hire following a successful bid for GO Ultra Low West funding from the Department for Transport (DfT).
The electric bikes, designed to cut congestion and give everyone the opportunity to get around the city on two wheels, will replace the nextbike public bike hire system.
Councillor Mark Shelford, cabinet member for Transport and Environment, said: “Our successful partnership with nextbike has helped to change attitudes to cycling. When nextbike first came to Bath, it replaced a very inefficient system and rapidly became a popular means of getting around the city. However, as technology has improved so has the demand for a simple, easy to use alternative. As a result I’m delighted that electric bike hire will be coming to the city this summer.”
