MYFIRSTMILE was a first-last mile flexible extension to the core First network in Bristol. The service connected across the established hub-and-spoke bus network accessing areas that can’t be served by traditional buses because of narrow streets. It saved passengers up to 60 minutes on an end-to-end journey by public transport to key employment destinations and Bristol Parkway; as well as serving short-hop journeys between residential and local shopping areas and amenities.

Kent County Council - Park and Pedal

Park & Pedal is a scheme that offers commuters and students an alternative way of completing the last mile of their journey. It opened at Wincheap Park & Ride site in Canterbury in June 2018. The scheme works by offering people the opportunity to ‘rent,’ free of charge, cycle parking within a secure cycle compound. People leave their cycles overnight in the compound, drive to the P&R and then pick up their bike to cycle the last leg of their journey. They can choose to use the scenic off-road Great Stour Way route, or the Park & Pedal signed road route.

Judges Award: Fleet Operator of the Year Award

Entries in this category:

Beryl - Beryl Bikes in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

The scheme has 200 Beryl Bays across a geographic area of almost 120km 2 . At its maturity the scheme will host 1,000 bikes and be the first and largest fully geo-fenced, hybrid bike share scheme in the world. The scheme has 2,100 active users who have completed more than 7,000 journeys over 4,000km in just one month of use, with an average journey length of 2km. 80% of users park bikes in their designated “Beryl Bays”, with this number set to rise with further implementation of bays across the conoburation.

Donkey Republic - Simplicity in Bike Sharing

The Donkey system uses a hub centric parking system meaning that all vehicles are to be parked in "virtual stations". This has the advantage of the vehicles only get parked in pre-designated parking areas. Each of our hubs or “virtual stations” has not only a maximum capacity, but also an optimal capacity. The optimal capacity being the lower, helps us to guard against overcrowding or having too few vehicles at a given area. If a bicycle is misplaced or a hub is “overcrowded”, the status is instantly updated in our system. This information is then sent directly to the City Manager and the shepherd team. A shepherd is dispatched, on an electric bike with a bike trailer, or on a trike if necessary, to relocate the vehicle to a designated hub. The Donkey Hub Centric system is based on algorithms working with location data from three different sources; a GPS on the bikes, GPS signal from the users phone taken on each lock and unlock action and bluetooth sniffing whereby each users app is sniffing for bluetooth locks and lets our system know if it spots a bike in a different location than our system has been told it should be. 

Nexans EVCS - Car sharing in the Ardennes

ShareNow - Scaling Carsharing with Flexible Car Clubs 

SHARE NOW (DriveNow) is a flexible carsharing service that has been operating in Greater London (9 boroughs) since December 2014. Since it started, SHARE NOW has grown from 210 to 720 shared vehicles, including 130 battery-electric BMW i3s. The total number of people that have registered with the scheme so far is over 70,000. Everything can be done through the app and there is no need for keys. Users of the service can find a car in any on-street parking bay, unlock the car with the app, and drive one-way or round-trip returning to any parking bay in the operating area (DriveNow Zone).

Via & Mercedes - ViaVan
 
ViaVan, the joint venture between Via and Mercedes-Benz Vans in Europe, has built the platform and technology for shared, electric vehicles (EVs) to operate efficiently as part of a scaled fleet-based ridesharing service.
