BikeUp!, design and innovation towards a more sustainable urban mobility

THE DEPARTMENT OF R&D OF SEGULA TECNOLOGÍAS, FROM ITS INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF EXCELLENCE OF THE RAILWAY LOCATED IN ZARAGOZA AND IN COLLABORATION WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF ZARAGOZA, HAS DEVELOPED A NEW CONCEPT OF BIKE RACK, ¡BIKEUP!

The combination of the train and the bicycle use as a form of transport is one of the paths to achieve more sustainable urban mobility models. But for this, it is necessary that the rolling stock is adapted to transport bicycles, making the process simple for the user.

The Department of R&D of SEGULA TECNOLOGÍAS, from its International Center of Excellence of the railway located in Zaragoza and in collaboration with the University of Zaragoza, has developed a new concept of bike rack, ¡BikeUp!

This system arises to cover an increasing demand from the user and manufacturer, in which the use of the light train is combined with the bicycle, placing it inside the wagon in a simple, comfortable and accessible way, maximizing the space available for the passengers.

BikeUp! is a column-shaped system with a mobile support on the vertical axis, which is fixed on the sides of the train, with a universal design, so it can be easily integrated in any type of wagon, being specifically designed to be installed in line or group, allowing to efficiently manage the train space.
