Shared mobility is for wider range of the society
- Location: Baltic countries: Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia
- Year: 2013 - now
- Initiator: Shared mobility means provider “CityBee”
The shared mobility means have gained popularity in the Baltic countries. However, the vehicles were not fully adjusted to different needs of the society at first.
Making shared transport mobility more accessible and adjusted to the needs of people travelling with children.
7 years ago one of the most popular shared cars provider – CityBee, started providing special child seats for use in the cars. Customers who do not need seats can simply remove them from the car and put them in the boot, so this solution remains attractive for customers travelling with or without children. The seats in CityBee cars are universal for children weighing 9 to 36 kilograms. Road traffic regulations oblige drivers to transport children under 135 cm height in a car or truck only in seats specially designed for their height and weight.
This solution adds to the new ways of mobility for parents without an owned vehicle or those who would like to take the advantage of this type of mobility. Unfortunately, the baby seats for the passengers who would like to travel with younger children are still not provided – this might be a possible improvement in the future.
