Cardiff Bus app and bike share link-up
Cardiff Bus‘ app from Passenger and bike share operator nextbike are now collaborating.
nextbike will feature on the app, which allows its 53,000 monthly users to find out everything they need for travelling around Cardiff by bus, from journey planning to live times and purchasing tickets. The addition of nextbike will give passengers the option to hop off a service and use an available bike.
Bosses at nextbike, Cardiff Bus and Passenger, believe this move allows essential workers travelling around the city now, and the passengers of the future post-lockdown, more options to control their journeys.
Gareth Stevens, Operations and Commercial Director at Cardiff Bus, said: “Cardiff Bus are thrilled to be able to integrate nextbike locations into our app and website.
“Not only does it give people travelling in Cardiff more options when planning their essential journeys right now, but it also helps to bridge the first mile last mile gaps, which will ultimately help to keep our city greener and cleaner in the future.”
Tom Quay, CEO, Passenger, said: “Anticipating the challenges the UK would have trying to social distance on public transport, we immediately knew that cycle hire schemes could make a difference. Having already worked with another bike sharing company in Bournemouth, we contacted nextbike to help get their bike and bay locations featured on the Cardiff Bus app and website.
“Key workers can now see the locations of nextbike bikes across Cardiff, providing them with travel options that support social distancing recommendations.”
