How we connected:
We have been involved with Quorum Park, through Transport Adviser Laura Kerry to appreciate the benefits of how e-Bikes could assist and ease the local traffic congestion and parking problems.
This was initiated through our e-Bike experience days, which led on to the implementation of a structured trial which resulted in extremely robust data and perception results.
Quorum Park wanted to prove that e-Bikes would enhance quality of life for their tenants.
They wanted to encourage their tenants to adopt e-Bikes as a practical means of transport for staff commuting.
The programme also explored the motives for rider experience and perceived impact on mobility, health & wellbeing while commuting to a place of work.
They were also keen to reduce commute times and traffic congestion, as well as pollution in urban areas.
Solution – How it all took shape
e-Mobilise and Quorum Business Park agreed to run a trial in October 2020, where several tenants from the park used e-Bikes for their daily commute. Each e-Bike was fitted with eRideTrak location trackers, and a report was generated each week and sent to Laura Kerry. Once the trial was over, we compiled all the data and analysed it, from which the outcomes are shared below.
