Smart Bike Share to reopen on the morning of 2 June
Tartu City Government Press Release
1 June / The City of Tartu will reopen its Smart Bike Share service at 05.00 on the morning of 2 June. Bikes will begin arriving at stations on 1 June.
The reopening of the Smart Bike Share service is being made possible thanks to the recent agreement concerning the rights to offer the Smart Bike Share management system reached between Bewegen Technologies Inc., which stopped offering the service, and Wegoshare Lda, which provided them with technical support and development.
Tartu Deputy Mayor Raimond Tamm confirmed that the relaunching of the service will not include any changes from the point of view of users regarding the service and that everything will continue as before. The compensation offered to users in the event of a disruption to the Smart Bike Share service will also remain in place. ‘We will also continue with our efforts on creating a new solution to make the service even more user-friendly in the future,’ Tamm added.
On 24 May, the City of Tartu was forced to temporarily suspend its Smart Bike Share service because the Canadian company providing the service, Bewegen Technologies Inc., stopped providing technical support for the Smart Bike Share service management system, which resulted in major disruptions to the Smart Bike Share service.
