Stage Intelligence Launches Accessible Artificial Intelligence Programme for Bike Share Schemes

Stage has introduced an introductory offer that enables small-to-medium Bike Share operators to leverage AI in the distribution and management of Bike Share Schemes

LONDON, 21 August 2017 – Stage Intelligence, a leading provider of Bike Share Scheme management solutions, has launched its accessible Artificial Intelligence (AI) programme to support small-to-medium Bike Share Scheme operators with affordable Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Operators with up to 2,000 bikes can leverage AI with real-time data and self-organising algorithm capabilities with Stage’s limited time introductory offer.

Stage Intelligence, founded in 2011, specialises in using AI solutions to tackle some of the most complex problems in transportation and the shared mobility market. In public Bike Share Schemes, Stage has been highly successful in supporting operators around the world in collecting data and optimising redistribution efforts. Operators are seeing more than 20% reduction in costs through improved operational efficiency with the BICO Solution. The introductory offer is levelling the playing field in a rapidly growing industry.

“Up until now, AI has been limited to the largest players in the market and required significant investment to develop and implement. Our accessible AI programme allows small and medium sized players to adopt new technology and use it to grow,” says Tom Nutley, Business Development Director at Stage Intelligence. “Bike Share Scheme operators globally can deploy AI and simplify how they manage their schemes. We are enabling more riders to enjoy an optimised Bike Share experience.”

BICO has been purpose-built to remove complexity and accelerate decision making. Through intelligence on weather conditions, seasonality, city events and a near infinite number of factors, operators can stay ahead of fluctuating demand. BICO enables Bike Share Scheme operators to take a smarter approach to redistribution by moving away from the traditional schedule or dispatch-based approach and eliminate wasted journeys.

“The shared mobility market is only the beginning for Stage and there are applications of our software in all aspects of transportation from public transit to optimising delivery. We have spent years enhancing our AI technology to support operators and ensure resources are there when and where people need them. Ultimately, this is what will help us to move beyond shared mobility and address the challenges of the wider industry” says Toni Kendall-Troughton, CEO at Stage Intelligence.

Stage’s BICO solution has been proactively managing one of biggest challenges in Bike Share, the availability of bikes and docking stations. Through AI, self-organising algorithms and real-time data, the software has simplified management and optimised operations for Bike Share Scheme operators worldwide. Stage’s state-of-the-art AI technology will be at the forefront of how people move from A to B in the future.

Stage Intelligence Integrates the GBFS Open Data Standard into its BICO Bike Share Recommendation Engine

Stage Intelligence Integrates the GBFS Open Data Standard into its BICO Bike Share Recommendation Engine

BICO uses Artificial Intelligence to enable bike share schemes around the globe to maximise their potential and deliver an optimal user experience.

LONDON, 21 August 2016 – Stage Intelligence, the leading provider of bike share scheme management solutions, has integrated the General Bikeshare Feed Specification (GBFS) open data standard into its BICO recommendation engine. The GBFS integration enables BICO to access real-time data feeds from all participating bike share schemes. Bike share schemes that use GBFS are able to rapidly deploy BICO and use Artificial Intelligence to optimise their bike share schemes.

BICO has been designed to simplify how bike share scheme operators manage and grow the bike share scheme using Artificial Intelligence. BICO takes into account an almost infinite number of factors and criteria in its decision making, enabling operators to leverage new levels of real-time intelligence.

“The GBFS integration accelerates access to real-time intelligence for participating bike share schemes. Bike share schemes that use BICO see more than a 15% reduction in operational cost while ensuring that bike share users always have access to the bike or dock they need,” said Toni Kendall-Troughton, CEO at Stage Intelligence. “We are the only provider of Artificial Intelligence-based solutions for bike share schemes with live deployments in major cities. The GBFS integration will support our growth around the world.”

The GBFS open data standard was adopted by the North American Bikeshare Association (NABSA) in November 2015. It makes real-time data feeds publicly available online in a uniform format so that map and transportation based apps can easily incorporate this data into their platforms.

“We are in a pivotal moment for bike share – one where technological advancements make bike share a more accessible form of transportation and easier to use than ever before.” said President of NABSA, Nicole Freedman. “The bike share industry has the opportunity to more seamlessly integrate into other forms of public transportation and trip-planning apps with the data GBFS offers.”

BICO uses real-time intelligence to understand and predict demand within a bike share scheme, while communicating where bicycles need to be redistributed to drivers via a mobile app. It removes the need for manual processes and decision making and enables operators to accurately predict demand across a coverage area. This means better service for customers, greater efficiency in operations, and the ability to scale and grow bike share schemes.

“Data drives innovation. The GBFS integration gives access to data around new scenarios and behavioural patterns within bike share schemes. That helps us to develop new solutions and gives our machine algorithms vital data for optimising bike share schemes in participating cities but also around the world,” said Francois McDonald, Solutions Director at Stage Intelligence.

Increasing Ridership in Bike Share Schemes with Artificial Intelligence

A Bike Share Scheme operator uses Stage Intelligence’s BICO distribution solution to increase scheme usability and simplify management
Increasing Ridership in Bike Share Schemes with Artificial Intelligence

www.stageintelligence.co.uk

Once a Bike Share Scheme has been launched and established, operators are often challenged to find ways to increase usability that can be simply managed. Convincing citizens to try and use Bike Share Schemes regularly depends on customer experience and the overall convenience of the scheme.

A Bike Share Scheme in a large metropolitan area could see that the majority of its active riders were dominated by those using the scheme for daily commutes and for social mobility. To continue the uptake within these segments of the market, the operator realised that it needed to solve usability issues and find an easier way to manage this.

It engaged Stage Intelligence to find a simple to manage solution for improving its schemes usability. Stage Intelligence’s BICO platform provides the Bike Share Scheme operator with real-time recommendations for bike distribution, ensuring that bikes and bike parking spaces are available when and where they are needed. Stage Intelligence solves availability challenges that limit Bike Share Scheme growth.

How to Grow a Smart City Bike Share Scheme

PRODUCED BY STAGE INTELLIGENCE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH EUROPEAN CYCLISTS’ FEDERATION (ECF)

Data is changing how we experience cities and enabling us to live healthier, happier and more productive lives. As cities become smarter, data is being used to reimagine transportation and how we get from A to B.

Every city is producing vast amounts of data every hour and every day. Increasingly this data is being captured and put to work creating new solutions, processes and experiences that improve how a city functions and is enjoyed by citizens.

Data can be used to improve, urban planning, health care, sustainability, transportation and just about every aspect of a city. The “smart” in Smart Cities is about taking this data and rapidly turning it into actionable insights.
