Helsinki is one of the top cities internationally for cycling. With population figures expected to reach 860 000 people by 2050, city officials and planners are focused on getting more of its residents cycling.  Aiming to increase the number of journeys taken by bicycle from 10% to 15% by 2020, Urban transport operator, Moventia, and CityBike Finland have partnered with bike-share scheme management solutions provider, Stage Intelligence, to deploy its BICO artificial intelligence (AI) platform in Helsinki’s bike-share scheme.

Stage specialises in developing, training and deploying AI technology to optimise the management and operations of bike-share schemes globally while CityBike Finland is the bike-share operator for the city. Helsinki CityBike has gone live with Stage’s AI management platform and is using it to drive usability of its 2000+ fleet of bikes and increase ridership for the new season of bike-sharing. Stage’s management platform solution is currently deployed in bike-share schemes including Divvy Bikes in Chicago and MIBICI in Guadalajara with more deployments anticipated in the near future.
