Co-bikes is the first UK electric bike member of the fast-growing global nextbike network which has normal UK bike share schemes in Bath, Milton Keynes, Coventry, Belfast, Stirling Glasgow and in over 100 locations worldwide. This will give Co-bikes members automatic access to bikes at cities across the UK and overseas.
‘After years of planning, we’re very excited to be launching Co-bikes in Exeter. The Co-bikes electric bikes are changing the way that people travel around the city and are affordable and easy as well as being great fun to ride! We all know that our cities are becoming more congested and spread-out, and a travel revolution is needed to help people more easily, quickly, enjoyably and affordably reach their business, study or leisure destinations.
‘Electric bikes are the catalyst for this revolution and for an easy, enjoyable, electric Exeter. Because of their small footprint, they can easily be docked on the street by transport hubs, business and retail parks, and residential communities – helping people link up other transport options in the way that best suits them.’
Managing director of Co-bikes and Co-cars
The e-bikes can be hired and returned to any docking station on the Co-bikes network. Like its sister company Co-cars, Co-bikes are hired on a pay-as-you-go basis.
People can hire the bikes on spec, or become a joint member of both organisations to gain discounts on both bike and car hire. Prices start from 75p per 30 mins for members and £1.50 for 30 mins for non-members.
