Taylor-made systems from a single source

nextbike understands the market dynamics of bike sharing and is able to share best practices with partners and customers.


Station-based systems

Bikes can be rented and returned at fixed stations. They can be marked with a terminal or a sign to increase the public awareness. 


Flex zone

In these free-floating systems with geo-fenced boundaries, bikes can be returned anywhere. It gives users a maximum of flexibility within the city center. 


Hybrid system

This is a combination of both system types. Stations within the flex zone ensure that a specific amount of bikes will be available at heavily frequented sites such as train stations.
