Developed in Germany, Smart Bike seeks to create a wide network of short distance transportation
A new environmentally-friendly transport concept has been introduced to help people get around Business Bay in Dubai.
Dubai Properties said the new transport concept has been introduced to provide a convenient and affordable alternative.
Smart Bike UAE offers two different options for people to get around the Business Bay area - either as a passenger or cyclist, with bikes available for hire at kiosks at three different locations at Business Bay Metro Station, Bay Square and Bay Avenue.
Originally developed in Germany, Smart Bike seeks to create a wide network of short distance transportation that will support current transport facilities, a statement said.
"The soft launch of this unique concept is already proving to be very popular among the community of Business Bay," said Mohamed Bin Essa, executive director Retail and Commercial Properties, Dubai Properties.
"We’re always exploring and introducing new and innovative options to facilitate and enhance the lives of the residents and visitors of our destinations, and Smart Bikes makes a perfect addition to what Business Bay has to offer.
"Now our visitors can swiftly move between their offices, to the malls, or to the metro stations, and enjoy a new green and safe transportation concept."
"Business Bay is the ideal destination to become the home of Smart Bike UAE," added Mohammad Noureddine, senior marketing Manager at SB UAE. "This new service will definitely be a great alternative to the daily commuters who live or work in the district, on their way to or from the metro, as well as all the visitors to the outdoor retail areas and promenades."
