Pilot project with E-bikes at Leuven station

The demand for an electric variant has been growing ever louder and now has a ready-made answer. In the spirit of circularity, we transformed our well-known Blue-bikes into an electric model. From now on, you will find the first 15 electric Blue-bikes at Leuven station. Existing Blue-bikes bikes are converted to the electric model. In this way, the Blue-bike retains its familiar design and functionalities. With this e-bike, you explore the city and its wide surroundings in a new and sustainable way. In case of a breakdown on the road, Ethias is also on standby for this e-bike.

Give it a go

We will place the e-bikes at the new Blue-bike location “Station Leuven E-lock (Tiensevest)”. 40 Blue-bikes will be placed at this new location: 15 e-bikes and 25 classic ones. You can find the e-bikes by their pink plate and battery under the distinctive blue basket. You can easily find and borrow them via the Blue-bike app, where you can also check availability. Borrowing an e-bike is done in the same way as our other bikes with digital lock: open the Blue-bike app, click on the location and select an e-bike from the list of available bikes. Then make a Bluetooth connection to the bike and the lock will automatically pop open. The e-bikes are available to all Blue-bike members. In the start-up phase, it is not possible to borrow an e-bike with a voucher.
