The shared electric cargo bikes of Cargoroo will be available to residents in The Hague from Sunday 15 September. In nine neighbourhoods in The Hague this handy alternative to the car will appear in the streets. With a large cargo area, seat belts for three children, Maxi-Cosi adapters and a radius of 100-km, the electric cargo bike is a fun, practical and eco friendly means of transport for families and entrepreneurs.
On Sunday, September 15, Cargoroo will demonstrate this internationally distinguished mobility solution at the Koningsplein, The Hague, to everyone who is interested. It is possible to take a test drive between 12.30 and 13.30. You can also ask questions to the initiators of Cargoroo and to local residents who recently participated in the test phase. Alderman Van Asten will be present to formally initiate this new e-cargo bike sharing scheme in The Hague.

Cargoroo: the missing link in shared mobility
Cargoroo – an Amsterdam startup and one of the participating startups in the Mobility Lab 2019 – is currently hiring electric cargo bikes through a pilot in Haarlem.
With Cargoroo, initiators Jaron Borensztajn, Jelle Maijer and Erik de Winter want to invite people to look differently at mobility in the busy inner cities. The average speed of motorists in The Hague’s city center rarely exceeds 25 kilometers per hour. In addition, the distance is less than 20 kilometers in about 80 percent of all car journeys.
The electric cargo bike from Cargoroo is a suitable alternative for these distances. The cargo bike offers users the freedom and independence of reliable and practical urban transport, parking convenience and makes them less dependent on the car.
