Tier launches 500 e-bikes in Islington

E-mobility company Tier is launching 500 e-bikes in Islington to help boost sustainable transport options following the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expansion.

The expanded ULEZ covers an area up to, but not including, the North Circular Road (A406) and South Circular Road (A205).

It is 18 times larger than the original central London ULEZ, which occupied the same area as the congestion charge zone.

Tier is one of the operators chosen to run the current e-scooter trial in London and believe expanding transport options with e-bikes can help cut congestion and pollution in the city.

Tier already runs e-bikes in Paris, Eindhoven and York.

The London e-bikes will initially be available from parking bays across Islington and will be charged at the same rate as e-scooters- - £1 to unlock and £0.15 per minute riding.

Regular riders, such as those using e-bikes for full or partial commutes, can purchase day and monthly passes.

Cllr Rowena Champion, Islington Council’s executive member for Environment and Transport, said: “By enabling more sustainable modes of transport, we can make the borough a place where everyone – including the approximately 70% of Islington households that do not own a car – travel safely and easily.   

“The arrival of Tier’s e-bike service in Islington will provide another environmentally-friendly, convenient and fun way to travel around our borough, and we look forward to seeing local people taking up the opportunity to use them.”
