New share bike rental launched – Two-year service agreement with the City of Reykjavik

This morning, a new division bicycle rental started operating in Reykjavik, and was launched at one of more than 40 stations that users can download or return bikes, according to a report from the City of Reykjavik. Republic has been picked as the official Bike Share for Reykjavik. We are happy to get Iceland on the map and we are grateful that we have been chosen and look forward to helping the city be greener, faster to get around and more fun! Our Hub-centric model which means good order in the city while providing flexibility and affordability seems to be valued by cities and their citizens.

Hundreds of bicycles were first put in place, and the mayor, president of the city council, chairman of the Planning and Transport Council and chairman of the Environment and Health Council got to test the first wheels. The share bike rental is run by the Donkey Republic brand which offers bikes in many cities and users can order bikes with a phone app. The app will be able to see free wheels, but the shareware rental will be available to users free of charge in the first week.
