Having been approved by the DfT and Norfolk County Council to operate an e-scooter trial in Norwich, Beryl is to launch a fleet of e-bikes, pedal bikes and e-scooters.

Beryl CEO Philip Ellis discusses the ways in which integrated parking systems for micromobility devices such as e-scooters and e-bikes can contribute to the coronavirus recovery as well as climate change mitigation.
The micromobility firm has also partnered with local governments to form vehicle safety management systems tailored to each city's unique traffic conditions.
Bolt is reportedly the first on-demand transportation platform in Europe to have e-bikes, scooters, and ridehailing under a single brand in one app.
The Scottish Government is providing additional funding to promote the uptake of e-bikes as lockdown restrictions ease and people begin to travel again.
The London Cycling Campaign (LCC) has published a research paper, arguing that road-legal micromobility technologies, with safe access to cycle tracks, will significantly contribute to the decarbonisation of the UK.
Bosses at nextbike, Cardiff Bus and Passenger stated that they believe this move offers essential workers travelling around the city now - and the passengers of the future post-lockdown - more options to control their journeys.
Sean Moroney, CEO of Cambridge Electric Transport, discusses the positives of bringing e-bikes to UK cities, and the challenges that come as a private sector organisation working with local councils and cities in creating the infrastructure that such a service needs.
