University Students To Acces Electric Bikes And Scooters For Ksh.20.
Little cab, a Kenyan company, plans to introduce electric bikes and scooters in select estates and universities throughout Nairobi.
The project will be tested first at the University of Nairobi (UoN), Kenyatta University (KU), and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).
During a press conference, Group Chief Executive Officer Kamal Budhabhatti revealed that the pilot project would begin with 200 electric bikes before expanding to include more over time.
“We are also talking with some estates within Nairobi metropolis. We shall start with 200 and that is a small number we are doing in universities. If the plan works well we will get 10,000 of these and assemble them locally,” he stated.
The CEO also stated that they chose institutions of higher learning because many students were having difficulty getting to class on time, noting that many universities had their facilities dispersed across their large parcels of land.
Users of the bikes and scooters will be charged Ksh20 per hour upon enrollment, with the electric bikes stored in various locations throughout the universities.
“We are putting these micro-mobility e-devices in universities. With the electric bike even when peddling uphill, little energy will be used for that.” Said the CEO.

“Some of our universities are very big and for students to walk from one end to another end they have to start to walk half an hour earlier,” he stated.
Users of the bikes and scooters will be charged Ksh20 per hour upon enrollment, with the electric bikes stored in various locations throughout the universities.
In terms of security, it was revealed that the company would collaborate with university administrations because the bikes are restricted to a specific geographical area.

Furthermore, Budhabhatti stated that if the bike and scooter pilots were successful, the program would be expanded to include vehicles.
’We are certain with micro-mobility services like bikes and scooters and if it works out well we will scale to motor vehicles,“ he stated.
Various companies have launched electric cars and bikes in Nairobi in recent years, even as they advocate for green energy. BasiGo, an electric bus company, launched electric bus services for Nairobi residents living in Eastlands and Mombasa Road in early March.
