TRYKE Transportation is a Malaysian based shared mobility service that launched in 2019. Through it’s platform it provides cheap and convenient rental access to personal mobility devices ranging from electric scooters and electric bicycles to electric mopeds to solve various transportation needs.
TRYKE now operates across 7 locations in Malaysia and since re-launching it’s service after COVID lockdowns in 2021 it has served over 120,000 people more than 500,000 trips totalling a travel distance of roughly 4.8 million kilometers which has helped to reduce an estimated 300MT of CO2 emissions.
However, while TRYKE’s mobility service helps thousands of people travel around Kuala Lumpur in a cheap, clean and convenient way, its data shows that movement within the city is shifting from “activity” based to heavily “necessity” based which has lower economic value.
Hence through this project, TRYKE aspires to develop a travel guide within its mobility platform to help visitors and residents of Kuala Lumpur experience all that the city has to offer, and help to spur economic activity and growth by reducing the pain and friction of wanting to discover and do more within Kuala Lumpur while leaving a small environmental impact.
