Guraride is a green E-mobility public bike- share (PBS) transport system company committed to the sustainability of Micro-Mobility in Africa with Rwanda being its first entry point.

Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda on Thursday partnered with Guraride to launch a bike-sharing transport scheme to promote eco-friendly mobility in urban areas. Under the partnership, GURARIDE installed modern green mobility bicycles at several ridesharing docking stations in Kigali City.

Speaking at the launch was the Mayor of Kigali city, .Pudence Rubingisa. He said “The use of these bikes as new mode of transport in the city of Kigali will contribute to the promotion of smart and green city,”

He noted that a bike-sharing transport system within the city will make movements from one point to another more convenient and affordable.

The Rwandan minister for infrastructure, Claver Gatete was also present at the launch and he said that the Rwandan government is looking to expand the initiative to other urban cities. He said that the government is encouraging and promoting carbon-free mobility in the country’s growing cities and urban centers.

The CEO and founder of Guraride, Tony Adesina said that Guraride has rolled out 80 smart bikes that are docked in 12 different docking stations in Kigali city.

“Kigali residents and visitors interested in using the bicycles will order for one and pay online since the App has been synced with digital payment platforms. A key will be generated after payment and used to unlock the bike,” added Adesina.

Lagos state alone has an estimated 20 million residents and about 5 million cars. Implementing the Guraride bike-sharing scheme will reduce the amount of cars on the road drastically and ease movement in and around the entire city.

The Guraride initiative is very beautiful and should be implemented in all major cities across Nigeria. It will go a long way to reduce our carbon footprint and the drastic effects of global warming in our world today.
