Smart Transport

Bikes plug into in Cardiff Bus App

Cardiff bus users can now travel even more seamlessly around the city thanks to a collaboration between bike share operator nextbike and Cardiff Bus.

The Cardiff Bus App allows 53,000 users to plan their journeys and purchase tickets. The addition of nextbike gives passengers the option to hop off a service and grab an available bike to travel on.

Users will be able to see on the app how many nextbikes are available at bays near bus routes across the city, and will be able to make an informed decision to adjust their journey.

Nextbike MD Krysia Solheim said: “This collaboration allows us to empower Cardiff citizens to make more choices about the way they travel, which is going to be even more important moving forward post-lockdown.

“Cycling is going to be a huge part of transport in the future, and the more options we can give people to cycle thanks to collaborations like this one with Cardiff Bus and Passenger, can only be a good thing.

Gareth Stevens, Operations and Commercial Director at Cardiff Bus said: "Not only does it give people travelling in Cardiff more options when planning their essential journeys right now, it also helps bridge the first mile/last mile gaps, which will ultimately keep our city greener and cleaner in the future.”
