Your Partner for E-Mobility from Cologne

E-shuttle service for an environmentally conscious future

In the context of so-called green meetings, the focus is on sustainability. Event planners are often faced with the challenge of making transfers sustainable and integrating the topic of e-mobility into the planning. RELAY supports you in the implementation of a climate-neutral shuttle service.

Shuttle service with electric vehicles

At the present time, it is possible to make use of a wide range of electric cars, or e-cars. In addition, hybrid vehicles with a combined combustion engine/electric motor can be used. Depending on the region, it is also possible to provide hydrogen-powered vehicles. The shuttle service can thus be operated in a CO2-neutral manner. The rental and concessioning of the vehicles for passenger transport is carried out by RELAY together with its partners.

E-Shuttle Service

Electric tramway & Bimmelbahn

In addition to the provision of e-cars for the shuttle service, it is also possible to use a fully electric tramway, also known as the Bimmelbahn, as part of a sustainable event. The tram has a road permit and a range of 60 km. It is suitable for short shuttle rides to a car park or on a factory site, for example, for sightseeing tours. The large advertising spaces of the Wegebahn or Bimmelbahn can be used individually. Depending on the number of trailers, the Wegebahn can carry a maximum of 45 people at a time.

Electric bus transfers

Bus manufacturers are currently concentrating on the production of electric buses for public transportation. Without government subsidies, the vehicles cannot be operated profitably at present. Encouraged by an EU subsidy, many cities and municipalities have invested in e-buses. In many German cities such as Berlin, Hamburg and Frankfurt, electric buses are already in use. These special vehicles are scheduled accordingly in the regular service so that they cannot be withdrawn from this operation for events. Therefore, it is currently not possible to use electric buses for sustainable events. Exceptions are sometimes made for high-profile sustainable events. The RELAY team will be happy to support you.

Charging infrastructure for events

The e-mobility offer is completed by the provision of charging infrastructure for the booked electric vehicles. It does not matter whether the vehicles provided by the event organiser are charged or whether this is offered as a service of the event organiser for the guests of the event. The charging columns can be branded, depending on the model with foil or also digitally via the built-in screen. The various fast charging systems have capacities from 2 x 22kw (AC) to 300kw (DC). Planning and approval at the responsible office is taken care of, as is the assembly/disassembly of the power distribution.
