Aiming to form a smart cycle community that allows the use of bicycles “anytime”, “anywhere” and “easily”

mobile_eco_cycle_index01

Currently, bicycles are gathering attention as a cutting-edge means of transportation in terms of ecology, CO2 reduction, clean energy, and healthy lifestyles. MOBILE ECO Cycle is an innovative movable bicycle parking system. Mobile ECO Cycle maximizes convenience and ease of use in urban areas. It can quickly be installed and removed in narrow areas.

Since our first launch of the automated underground bicycle parking system “ECO Cycle” in 1998, we have refined and advanced bicycle storage technology. We applied this experience to Mobile ECO Cycle, which is easy to operate, ecologically friendly and economically sound. By linking benefits of bicycle use with the advantages of MOBILE ECO Cycle, we enable creating a smart cycle community – a cutting-edge clean transportation culture where bicycles can be used “anytime”, “anywhere” and “easily”.

6. Operational cost is low and economical

Managing staff responsibility is limited to customer registration, thanks to the fully automated Mobile ECO Cycle. Therefore, workforce can be kept to an efficient minimum. Due to this, Mobile ECO Cycle costs are much lower than traditional bicycle storage facilities.

7. Exterior walls are ideal for signage

Cyclists have a personal connection to the Mobile ECO Cycle. Users both trust and memorize the location and appearance of the facility storing their belongings. They will associate their property with any advertisement displayed on the Mobile ECO Cycle.
