nextbike by TIER has been expanding its operations in Italy since the spring of 2022. After successfully launching in Bergamo with LaBigi, the company had introduced its system in Gorizia. Now, it has announced that it is set to further expand its presence in the country with bike-sharing systems in Senigallia and Mondolfo, starting in Autumn 2023.

The addition of these two cities will bring a total of around 170 bikes, including 55 e-bikes, to the Adriatic Coast. These bikes will serve as a convenient supplement to the existing public transport services in both Senigallia and Mondolfo.

In order to ensure ease of use for both residents and tourists, nextbike by TIER will implement a hybrid system comprising fixed stations and flexible parking zones. This approach will simplify the process of accessing and returning bikes, making it more convenient for users.

Furthermore, the integration of the bike-sharing system into the ‘OpenMove MaaS’ (Mobility-as-a-Service) platform and the collaboration with ‘T-Bridge’ will seamlessly connect the bike-sharing service with the public transport system. This integration aims to facilitate the transition to sustainable transportation options like cycling.

Pietro Peyron, in charge of nextbike by TIER‘s business development in Italy, expressed pride in the company’s expanding presence in the country. He said: “We are proud that our offer is also increasingly gaining a foothold in Italy. The bike-sharing systems in Senigallia and Mondolfo offer great potential for the local transport revolution thanks to MaaS integration, and we are delighted to be helping to shape this transformation.”
