Tired of traffic jams and the endless search for a parking place? Want to contribute to a better environment? You might be interested in traveling with mobility startup Urbee, whose electric bikes could soon pop up everywhere along the canals of Amsterdam.
‘A healthy and happy solution for traffic jams, parking problems and city pollution’. That is what Urbee wishes to achieve with its new electric bike sharing platform. The company would like to see a clean city without cars, or at least with very few cars. Urbee is a concept of Ebikenetwork BV, which is a cooperation of Dutch Bicycle Rental, electric bike manufacturer Qwic, and software company Skopei. The startup has just announced it received 2,1 million euro in funding from Het Amsterdams Klimaat en Energiefonds, the governmental eco-fund that is also responsible for among others, the funding of Amsterdam Arena’s solar panels.
