The Carbon SUV e-bike is basically a powered mountain bike on steroids

It looks like a bad ass dirt-bike, but with none of the noise and gasoline stink. It blends the terrain-mastery of a dirt bike with the comfort of a fat bike and an e-bike’s ease of use. It’s like a sport utility vehicle-bike with a cool form factor.

Moovit’s Bike Share integration goes live in over 110 cities worldwide

moovit_logo

Cities in every part of the world have systems that allow people to rent bicycles to travel from place-to-place. The benefits vary for everyone, but I think it’s best if you’d like to avoid mass transit and enjoy the city around you. My recent trip to New York City proved to me that a lot of people really take advantage of Citi Bike, the United States’ largest bike sharing system. At each block, someone was coming down the street on one of these rented bikes. So it’s clearly becoming a rising form of transportation. Moovit, the local transit app that started focusing on smaller means of travel, is proud to announce Bike Share integration in more than 100 cities worldwide.

Moovit’s addition of Bike Share means that you don’t have to jump between apps in order to rent a bike and get pedaling around a city. Directions to the bike sharing hub are provided in the same nature that Moovit gets you to any other place.

Here’s how to use Moovit’s Bike Share:

  1. Find the preferred location on the map and see the number of available bikes noted on the map icon
  2. Tap the icon to review either the number of available bikes to ride, or the number of empty slots for locations to which users want to return your bike
  3. Tap Get Directions and Moovit will provide step-by-step to the bike

Over twenty-five new cities are also being added to Moovit. Mumbai (India), Stuttgart (Germany), Patra (Greece), Clermont-Ferrand (France), Andorra la Vella (Andorra), Puebla & Mérida (México), Apucarana, Parnaíba, Caxias do Sul & Campina Grande (Brazil), Ferrol, Toledo, Murcia, Logroño (Spain) and fourteen Canadian cities are included in the update. So you can travel in almost 1,000 cities worldwide and join the 28 million people that are already using Moovit.
