Making our cities more liveable

CIE Expert Group on Bike Share (BSEG) represents the leading European Bike Share Operators and Service Providers – Tier by nextbike, Fifteen, Donkey Republic, Inurba, Urban Sharing, Beryl, Dott, PBSC, BCycle, Fluctuo, MobilityData, Qucit, Phylion and Cargoroo – each bringing sustainable and shared mobility to the world. The group was initially launched at Velo-City Dublin in 2019. 

The European leadership group forms a powerful advocacy group making sure bike sharing is featured in all EU's policies, measures and funding. We work closely with the EU and national policy makers and cities to drive the sector forward. Some examples of ur work are: Drafting position papers on bike sharing benefits, advocacy campaings such as "Why every city should have its own bike sharing scheme?", workshops with cities on finance, sustainability, vandalism and communications, webinars on integrating bike sharing with public transport, data and a study on Benchmarking Bike Sharing in 148 European Cities.

CIE's BSEG looks forward to working with cities and policy makers to support them in the rapidly changing active mobility landscape!
