E-bikes to complement the transport offer in Scotland

HiTRANS will be running electric bike pilot projects in Cairngorm National Park; placing e-bikes in locations where public transport might be difficult to access, with the hope that e-bikes could assist users in reaching public transport from outlying areas. It is expected that an e-bike central hub will be present in Aviemore, and other locations will be selected based on existing infrastructure and cycle routes for practicality, with Kingussie and Newtonmore favourable choices. INCLUSION partner HiTRANS plans to engage with car clubs, such as Enterprise Car Club, to assess whether car clubs would consider extending their model to Aviemore, Grantown and Kingussie. HiTRANS would also like to engage with Liftshare to investigate if there are ways of better integrating the HiTravel portal with buses in the area. The final wish of the Pilot is that these activities will contribute to more inclusive, sustainable transport in Cairngorm National Park. More updates will follow in the next newsletter.
