Bike Citizens app wins Eurobike Award and ODINE subsidy

Bike Citizens app wins Eurobike Award and ODINE subsidy

Cycling through a city the smart way with a telephone: The app “Bikecitizens” – known as “Bike City Guide” until 2014 – is meanwhile providing cyclists navigation aids for 200 cities, simple route planning and the possibility to record covered routes. For this the young Graz-based company now won the Eurobike Award 2015 in the category Concepts & Services, the mobility price of the Austrian traffic association VCÖ and a subsidy approval from the international “Open Data Incubator for Europe” (ODINE), which divided up 650,000 Euros in total among seven selected companies in Europe. Congratulations!

The Austrian mobility price is awarded by the VCÖ in cooperation with the transport ministry, the environmental ministry and the Austrian federal railways ÖBB. This year’s motto was “Mobility in a Changing World”. In the category “Climate-friendly Mobility” the Bike Citizen App convinced the jury. On 16 September managing director Daniel Kofler received the price from environmental minister Rupprechter in Vienna. “The app is an incentive to cover more miles in a healthy and environmentally-friendly way on a bicycle,” said VCÖ managing director Willi Nowak. That evening also another CycleCompetence member was honoured: In the category “Changing Societies” Radlobby was awarded the mobility price for its cycling training project for migrant women “Frauen in Fahrt”.

Only a week prior to receiving the mobility price Bike Citizens was celebrating a subsidy approval it was granted from the “Open Data Incubator for Europe (ODINE)”. It divided 650,000 Euros among seven European companies for a two-year programme. The selected start-ups and companies are based in Great Britain, Italy, France, Estonia and Austria. They are covering topics like child diseases, organic waste recycling or traffic safety. Here is a list of all award winners.

By the way: The smartphone mount Finn, also developed by Bike Citizens, already received a Eurobike Award as best gadget in 2014.
