Stage Intelligence has deployed its Bico artificial intelligence (AI) platform to urban transport operator Moventia and bike share operator CityBike Finland to support Helsinki’s bike share scheme.
Stage Intelligence says Bico is actively collecting citywide data and optimising bike sharing operations in the city.
The solution is intended to allow CityBike to maximise usage of its more than 2,000 bikes and increase ridership as it continues to expand in the Finland’s second city, Espoo.
Jordi Cabañas, general manager of the bikesharing division at Moventia, says the partnership will help the company make bike sharing more accessible and attractive and encourage more residents to use public transport.
Juha Pitkänen, service manager at CityBike Finland, says over half the population in Helsinki relies on public transportation for daily commutes and over 60% of these journeys are combined with CityBike bicycles.
