The cycling stations will be low cost as they will take the form of light attachments onto existing city infrastructure in the form of street lamp poles, with the following services:
-A bike rack to accommodate 3-4 bikes in the form of attached handle bars.
-A bike tire pump.
-Advertising in the form of small placards on the pole.
-A used bike hanging prominently on the light post as a beacon to attract the attention of drivers and cyclists.
-Sign/graphic directing people toward downloading the complimentary B-Hub app.
These will be the beta poles. At a more advanced stage, additional attachments will be implemented.
B-Hub mobile application:
When taking a break at a B-Hub pole, cyclists will be able to check-in using the B-Hub app which will offer further services to compliment their journey.
These services include:
-A check-in reward system that will be coordinated with local establishments to offer cyclists discounted or free products.
-A map of suggested city routes to avoid dangerous intersections or streets as well as a map to the other B-Hub poles.
-A map of bike-friendly establishments that offer discounts or bike parking.
-Advertisements from sponsors.
-A community board where riders can exchange riding tips, stories, jokes.
