Cochrane, AB – Cochrane is excited to announce the arrival of electronic bikes to community streets.
Starting on June 17, e-bikes will be added to the Cochrane-wide fleet, providing up to 40 bikes across the serviceable areas. The electric-assisted bikes, provided by Roll, are designed for longer distances, allowing more local transportation options. As an added feature, the bikes have a small front luggage rack allowing space for users to store/hold their items with ease.
“The expansion of e-bikes into our community means more options for residents to get across Cochrane safely and affordably,” says Devin LaFleche, Community Connectivity Advisor, Town of Cochrane. “This is an incredible way for Cochrane to once again reduce its carbon footprint, becoming more environmentally conscious.”
In addition to the introduction of the e-bikes, Roll will also be expanding into the communities of Sunset Ridge, Bow Ridge, Jumping Pound Ridge, Bow Meadows and Cochrane Heights. At no extra cost to the Town of Cochrane, the expansion creates an opportunity for shared micro-mobility that is more accessible and equitable for the community.
The Town of Cochrane is continuing to establish and create designated parking spots, no-parking and no-ride zones as well as slow-speed zones.
