Beam e-bikes will be available at numerous locations across the city
The Beam Apollo fleet of advanced electric bikes (e-bikes) was today launched in Auckland to expand Beam’s offerings and bring more transportation choice to Aucklanders.
Beam will deploy an initial fleet of 50 e-bikes and will grow to a full fleet of 400. The bikes will be strategically placed at approved parking locations across Auckland to maximise the city's existing bike infrastructure.
“We are excited to grow our partnership with the community and are building on the success of our e-scooters to increase travel options and bike mode share for Auckland,” said Frederick Conquer Beam’s Operation Manager for Auckland. “Micromobility has the potential to reshape the way our cities move, by enabling people to get around easily, affordably and safely. We’re delighted to launch the Beam Apollo, in New Zealand for the first time,” he added.
Auckland awarded Beam a licence for 400 e-bikes and the bikes will contribute to use of the city’s growing bike infrastructure. In addition, the climate and hills, which run throughout Auckland make riding e-bikes an attractive mobility option.
