HumanForest's e-bikes rack up record usage in May

HumanForest e-bike

Micromobility platform HumanForest recorded the highest ever usage of its electric bikes in London in May.

The company says it completed a record 150,000 trips in London last month, which it says avoided 25 tonnes of Co2 from being emitted into the atmosphere. This was up from 40,000 trips in March and 80,000 trips in April.

Agustin Guilisasti, founder and CEO, said: “The huge growth in eBike usage across London is a credit to the local councils who have worked tirelessly to bring schemes like HumanForest to their residents. By providing 10 minutes free daily, free parking in our virtual bays and training academies, HumanForest makes cycling accessible to everyone.”

A recent survey of the company’s users found that environmentalism is a leading driver of usage, with 68% of users citing HumanForest’s eco-friendliness as the main reason why they opt for the company’s sustainable eBike. The company will soon launch its fleet of electric mopeds in London. 

It comes as the Government announced that the forthcoming transport bill would improve transport across the UK.

HumanForest eBikes says it operates a unique advertising-led revenue model, whereby consumers receive an advert from partners before and after using a HumanForest eBike. This allows customers to ride for free for 10 minutes each day and costs 15 pence per minute thereafter. HumanForest has developed a virtual parking bay system, called ‘Green Bays’, where users can park free of charge.
