Build Your Own Bike Share: Custom Bicycle Manufacturer Republic Bike Launches Solar-powered, Bluetooth Bike Share System

Republic Bike announces affordable, automated, bicycle sharing
solution for corporate campuses, universities, residential properties,
hotels or anyone wanting to launch their own bike share

DANIA BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Republic Bike, known for its distinctly original custom bikes and
programs, is launching an equally customizable, companion bike sharing
solution.

“Bike share is being popularized, in a municipal format, as an expected
and enlightened transit utility. Now, with our program, the same
functionality and amenity can be set up anywhere, by anyone, for a
fraction of the cost,” says Republic Bike president, Avery Pack.

Republic Bike’s system employs solar powered, Bluetooth smart locks
integrated with Republic’s custom fleet bicycles. Bikes are checked out
with the rider’s smartphone on an app customized for each bike share.

Bikes are paired with docks that allow basic or complex bike share
networks to be designed. Clusters of docks can be located anywhere there
is available space, creating organized and predictable rental and return
stations. Docks do not require wiring, connectivity or complicated
infrastructure considerations, and can be added or relocated as systems
grow and adapt.

“Each user’s smartphone bears a lot of the burden of the rental process
– keeping the system nimble and affordable,” says Pack. “The user
experience is fast and friendly – just walk up to a bike and rent it
with your phone.”

Like the recognizable fleet bicycles manufactured by Republic Bike, the
app is completely customizable: from the style to the ability to create
flexible billing structures for free to fee-based systems with secure
credit card processing – making revenue generating bike share simple to
set up.

Republic Bike’s system empowers local operators and businesses to set
their own terms and run their own bike share programs for their own
communities.

With a powerful backend, operators have complete control over their
systems as well as informative oversight to help their bike share thrive.
