Ten years of experience

nextbike was founded in 2004 in Leipzig, Germany. Ever since it has become one of the leading producers and operators of bike sharing systems around the world.


All under one roof

nextbike designs and manufactures almost everything in-house – from software to hardware. This allows us to work quickly and more flexibly while keeping costs down.

Pioneering technology

Starting with a basic bike rental system, nextbike evolved to a technology driven bike sharing company. Today our bikes, terminals and also our IT infrastructure are based on state-of-the-art technologies such as NFC, GPS, RFID, solar power and mobile payment.

Custom solutions

All our products - from hardware to software - are designed and developed in-house and are compatible with each other. This approach allows us to have agile processes in order to meet individual needs in a cost-efficient way.

Sustainable business model

nextbike has developed various products and services to profitably finance operating costs and therefore provide a self-sustaining bike rental solution.
