Since we launched the KVB-Rad in Cologne in 2015 we can record nearly 1,2 million rentals spread over 1.450 bikes. To the 55.000 Cologne customers it does not seem to matter whether it's warm and sunny or cold and rainy - rentals per day nearly stay the same.
On May 17th this year we were able to record over 5.000 rentals in one day for the first time. In average our bikes are rented about 3.000 to 3.700 times a day.
Recently also the trams carry advertisments for our bikes.
nextbike was founded in Leipzig in 2004 and operates public bike sharing schemes in over 60 German cities and 27 countries worldwide. As urban mobility service provider nextbike considers itself sustainable part of public transport. Its multilingual customer service is available 24/7. Service teams maintain and redistribute bikes throughout the cities.
nextbike mainly offers station-based schemes with the option of a complemented flexible return of the bikes.
