University bike sharing programs
Most universities are contending with similar traffic problems: more commuters, parking shortages, full buses and trains and the long distances between departments in ever-growing campuses.
For these reasons many universities such as in Bath in the United Kingdom or Potsdam and Bochum in Germany have begun using nextbike’s public bike systems.
How it works
- As part of an agreement with the universities or student unions, students and staff are given a package of free memberships and rentals.
- Their university email address serves as the verification.
- Students and staff have access to any of the bikes in their city with additional stations installed on and around the campus itself as required.
