The Smove.City Equity Plan For Cities

The Smove.City Equity Plan for Cities

Smove.City will agree with each City partner to a two-pronged approach to equity:

  1. Offering affordable pricing, engaging the community and broad access
  2. Expanding Program coverage over time to underserved parts of the City

 

 

 

Smove.City desires to help achieve civic goals related to equity, innovation, experimentation, and maintaining order in the City’s right-of-way by providing high-quality, reliable equipment and software; seamless customer service; comprehensive, meaningful bike share program; and collaboration with the municipal/City and local businesses”

Constantin Vermoere, Founder & CEO Smove.City

 

 

 

Smove.City will work with each City in good faith to implement the “Smove.City Equity Plan”

 

At SMOVE.CITY, we believe in engaging the community and working together with local authorities that is why we introduced our Smove.City Equity Plan.

Our equity plan can be summarised as follows:

  • Smove.City will administer a low-income program at its cost, including the following elements:
  1. Income-Eligible Membership: Smove.City will offer a discounted annual membership to income-eligible individuals.
  2. Programming, in partnership with community organizations, to introduce new audiences to bicycle share, such as group rides and riding classes.
  •  Smove.City will rebalance bicycles to ensure equitable access to the Program throughout the service area.
  1. Smove.City bicycle distribution commitments are geographically equitable by requiring Smove.City to rebalance bicycles to all areas of the City.
  2. Smove.City will expand Program coverage to underserved parts of the City in mutual agreement with The City
  • Smove.City will support programming from (local) partner organizations that promote bicycle share, including by providing free passes that may be used by local partners to teach local residents about bike sharing.
  • Smove.City will advocate for bicycle safety programming to increase community awareness of bicycle share.

Smove.City will measure its equity efforts through(i) rider demographics and(ii) accessibility of bicycles in targeted neighborhoods.Smove.City will seek the advice of local researchers and experts to improve methods of measuring equity in bicycle share.

SMOVE.CITY participated in the “Car free day” event in Prague – Suchdol on the 19th of September

SMOVE.CITY participated in the “Car free day” event in Prague – Suchdol on the 19th of September

Suchdol is situated on a hill above the Vltava River, which, together with the Hercynian folds, has formed the present-day form of a romantically beautiful landscape since the Old Age, a protected nature reserve. The oldest settlements are proven by the findings of the boulder industry from the period 300,000 years ago.

The Prague-Suchdol district was established on the basis of Act No. 418/1990 Coll., On the Capital City of Prague after the municipal elections on 24 November 1990, and consisted of the cadastral area of ​​Suchdol and the entire cadastral area of ​​Sedlec. On January 1, 2005, Dolní Sedlec joined the city district of Prague 6.

This year is a big challenge for our towns and cities. But the pandemic also showed us that people appreciate and expect our cities to become safer, cleaner and accessible to all. During this week and beyond, our partner cities from all around Europe will show how greener and more digital European towns and cities could look.

Smove.City had an exhibition stand on the main square during this event.

"During the Car Free Day, pedestrian zones with a rich program of educational, sports, cultural and other activities and attractions for young and old are created in places normally filled with cars. Visitors will experience first-hand what a healthier, friendlier and happier city can look like when the noise from passing cars subsides, the air is cleared and valuable space belongs to people."
