New city bikes, a robot bus, and pilot projects for an e-bike system – these and many other great things happened during the summer of 2019. At the beginning of the summer, the citizens of Oulu voted Sykkeli as the name of the new perky pink city bicycles that will be available for at least the next 10 years.

Shorter projects, in which Rolan participated with its strong expertise, also took place during the summer. For instance, the robot bus pilot project at Kalasatama, Helsinki, lasted for six months and ended this November. Rolan’s presence in the project provided a good opportunity to develop and fine-tune the company’s competence in the operation and maintenance of automatic traffic.

The e-bike pilot project for the city of Hämeenlinna that aims at a more low-carbon urban structure is also about to end. In the project, Rolan provided the electrically-assisted bicycles, the related information system, and the user support. The pilot project also included a four-part research element. The aim of the report that was drawn up on the basis of the collected research data is to help and provide support in the launching of the city cycling-related measures.

Rolan also was the main sponsor partner in the VeloFinland event. The event provided information on the latest innovations in cycling and urban bicycle traffic. The VeloFinland event also showed a glimpse of what the future looks like from the perspective of urban and shared cycling.

The maintenance services for shared and rental cars was the company’s backbone for many years long before the shared bicycles and electric scooters entered the market. Cars still play a major role in getting people from one place to another. We here at Rolan have also noted this, and our car services have significantly developed in relation to both geographical availability and volume in 2019.

Many great projects and events took place during the summer, but luckily summer is not the only season that is suitable for biking. Rolan also maintains the city bikes in the winter, so cycling can also be enjoyed in the brisk winter weather.
