An e-bike share scheme has been proposed for Auckland public transport hubs. Council is currently reviewing a proposal by a consortium of businesses for a pilot scheme which could result in a fleet of 100 shared e-bikes being available to hire across central Auckland. Centrality head of strategic partnerships Andy Higgs said the consortium had proposed entering into a partnership with Auckland Transport (AT) and Auckland Council to trial the e-bike share service from October 2017. The pilot proposes e-bikes stations at 10 transport hubs. The consortium requested support from AT to allocate space at hubs such as Britomart Station for the 12 month pilot. The group would run the pilot programme without public funding, he said.
