Copenhagen introduces rental bikes with tablets

Copenhagen launched the first rental bikes fitted with tablets. Not only do they provide information about shareable bikes and docking stations, but one also can plan a route or consult a public transport route planner.

  • Copenhagen has maintained a public share-bike system – especially popular among tourists – already since 1995. At the end of last year the municipality decided to introduce a totally new system, so that Copenhagen will now have the most advanced share-bike system in the world. The new share bikes are not only equipped with gps, but they also sport a handlebar-mounted tablet connected to the internet.

    In addition to travel information, the tablet can also provide location-based information about regional activities. One can book the bikes online and also with the help of a special app.

    The bikes themselves are made of aluminium with puncture-proof tires. As a start, 150-200 bikes will be deployed this year. That number will increase to 1500 next year, distributed over 65 stations. By adding just a couple of extra parts, these bikes can be easily converted to electric bikes.
