’s Bico artificial intelligence (AI) platform is being used by Tembici to help increase the usability of more than 16,000 bikes across Latin America.
The Bico platform is expected to help bike-share companies increase ridership by ensuring that bikes and docks are available for riders.
Tom Nutley, CEO at Stage, says: “A smarter approach to transport results in sustainable bike share schemes but also healthy and happier riders and communities.”
Initially, the deployment will cover cities in Brazil including Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Recife, Salvador, Port Alegre and Vila Velha. A second phase is to follow in Santiago, Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Last August, Stage’s Bico platform was used by transport operator Moventia and bike-share operator CityBike Finland to support bike-sharing schemes in Helsinki.
