CLEVR Mobility works directly with cities to deploy free-floating kickscooters and e-bikes as an integrated extension of public transit systems. CLEVR functions as a full turnkey operator and provides the city with a share in the revenue while the city retains real-time regulatory control over vehicles that are branded as part of their transit system. Cities are concerned about the costs of managing and enforcing the emerging dockless programs. Our platform removes undue burden from the cities and citizens and shifts from reactive enforcement to intelligent compliance and management.
CLEVR is built for operationally efficient fleet deployment, real-time control and management, and is composed of the following elements:
- Fleet Grade LEVs - an e-bike and an electric kickscooter that are designed and built for fleet use. The kickscooter is a 3-wheel vehicle that offers greater stability and is more universally approachable for all skill levels and age groups.
- CLEVR Nav enhanced GPS - Precise real time GPS tracking and control of vehicles within 3' accuracy and ability to geofence designated areas & control vehicle speed over-the-air. This effectively means we can control what a vehicle does on sidewalks (disable, limit top speed) vs what it does on street or bike lane. We can also control and enforce exact parking locations thanks to our accurate GPS that functions even in typically GPS compromised areas (urban canyons).
- CLEVR Power (Battery as a Service) - Smart modular battery designed to seamlessly operate both CLEVR vehicles. Allows for greater operational efficiency in keeping the fleeting charged at all times.
- CLEVR App & Command Center - White label app for users to interact with the fleet vehicles and a cloud connected command center that enables fleet operators to manage their batteries & vehicles in real time.
CLEVR represents the smart evolution of dockless shared micro-mobility operations like Bird & Lime. We created CLEVR out of a passion for trying to solve the urban transportation challenges that are the product of global population growth and urban densification. The rise of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) as a flexible alternative to traditional modes of transport has truly opened the door to innovative first/last mile solutions. We believe that intelligent use of technology can avoid unnecessary friction between operators intent on rapidly disrupting personal transportation and the cities that need to balance change with the inherent liabilities and burdens that often come with those changes. In fact, rather than trying to manage the haphazard deployment of dockless last mile e-mobility, we believe cities should be investing in this form of transit themselves - it is a much lower cost investment than larger projects like rail, and offer the potential for revenue while addressing critical transportation and congestion issues. This approach enables cities to offer the service to commuters as part of the transit eco-system while also ensuring equitable deployment and access to all neighborhoods and socio-economic groups. Electrified bikes and scooters also provides a clear enjoyment to the users and an ability to navigate hills without too much effort or sweat!
Another benefit of deploying CLEVR's shared mobility platform in neighborhoods is the opportunity to create direct employment related to the project - charging, rebalancing, maintenance, data engineers and more. Furthermore, having access to very affordable transportation will also make it easier to access employment opportunities while also enabling people to participate in the 'gig economy' - for example, a certain number of e-bikes can be outfitted with a delivery box on the back, making it possible for someone to use it to sign up and deliver for services like Postmates, UberEats and DoorDash; something that would have not been possible without access to a personal vehicle. Rent an e-bike for $8/hour and make $30 - $40/hour.
