New forms of mobility
Barcelona, as a smart city, has achieved a wide range of benefits through investment in IoT for urban systems. The high-tech improvements seen throughout Barcelona offer a good example for other cities looking to improve their technology infrastructure in a similar way.
To celebrate world bicycle day, we want to remember the investment made in mobility. After many years of sharing public bicycles, it may seem like another service, but in the past Barcelona was one of the first and largest cities to implement the system. This initiative aims to reduce the number of cars circulating in the city. Despite occasional controversies, Bicing can be considered a success with its more than 120,000 users
Urban mobility is one of the main sources of pollutant emissions that seriously harm people’s health, is related to CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and accounts for more than 20% of the city’s energy expenditure. Cities are part of the problem, but also part of the solution. For this reason, Barcelona moves towards smoke (CO2)-free mobility and promotes a paradigm shift towards safe, sustainable, efficient, and equitable mobility. Because the way we move cannot determine the future of the planet or that of the generations to come. To mitigate climate change, the city has set itself the goal of reducing its CO2 emission levels by 40% by 2030, relative to 2005.
In this direction, a new reality in terms of mobility is electric scooters. A private alternative to help reduces emissions in cities. Yupcharge has developed the definitive solution to park electric scooters efficiently, the TRAP CHARGE PARKING, modular and 100% compatible with all models of electric scooters on the market.
