Co-bikes is providing the first on-street city wide public hire as you ride electric bike network in the UK. We are starting with 3 stations, but soon will progress to 6 and then more electric bike hubs across the city. Each hub will have about 4-6 bikes at them. Co-bikes provides affordable smart, fun and easy electric cycle service for the city and beyond, using smart technology and mobile apps. Co-bikes is part of Co-cars the hire by the hour car club for Exeter and the South West. Our electric bikes are powered by renewable energy from Good Energy so all our bikes are zero carbon.
Our electric bikes and software is provided by nextbike, a global player in the bike share industry. Nextbike provides or operates bike share systems in over 100 cities worldwide, with sites also in Bath, Milton Keynes, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and Coventry. As a member of Co-bikes you automatically become a member of nextbike and can use all their bikes and stations elsewhere.
