E-Bina is the first bike-sharing service platform with mobile applications within the city of Angola, South Africa. Their mission is to revolutionize the last mile for pedestrians by providing self-sustainable mobility in urban areas. So far it has 150 bicycles in the Bay of Luanda as well as in centralities. Users can simply use the application to obtain a bicycle, have a ride and then return it.
When the client shared the idea of developing an application, we realized that it is a great idea as they were offering mobility with health.
We initiated the process by understanding the geographic condition and legal norms over there. To ensure a safe and comfortable ride experience for users.
Angola has not that much complicated legal norms when it comes to bicycle-sharing business. Ensuring the safety of users and making them follow traffic rules (for bicycles) is the responsibility of E-Bina.
As the E-Bina was the first bicycle service provider, so much potential was there to establish a wide customer base and get over the market.
Considering the weather over there we realized that normal, healthy people can ride maximum up to 5 km straight. We suggested offering short rides of 1 to 4 km on an average.
We came up with the solution to provide every equipment monitored through a GPS tracking system (Concox) to ensure the safety of users and the accuracy of distance covered on a real-time basis.
