Many people living in cities don’t own cars as they prefer using public transport, their bike, and sharing services. However, transporting shopping, children, or pets can be a hassle. Imagine the weight of carrying your groceries home, the stress of your child nagging on the back of your bike, or your dog being scared of riding on the train.
(Especially electric) Cargo bikes are a great solution. But they cost a lot and you don’t need them every day. Plus, many people have no storage room and worry about theft. Sharing is a much better way to use cargo bikes.
Many ops or delivery companies agree. Owning and maintaining a fleet distracts from the actual job. Imagine the time, stress, and resources needed if one of your bikes breaks down. You send out a new driver to cover the tour, transport the broken bike back to the warehouse, wait for the mechanic and spare parts. With avocaGO you just switch to another bike and keep going. And during high demand when you need more bikes, you just pick more off the road.
Small shops use avocaGO’s when they actually need them – with no fixed costs. Companies can focus on their core business and large platforms offer their riders a great alternative to regular bikes or mopeds.
