E-bikes in Rotterdam
Gobike is the ‘smart link’ in the public transport network. It’s a durable, innovative and unique system of smart electric sharebikes, complementing the public transport network and connecting all places of interest in Rotterdam. By using a Gobike, you can reach your destination quickly. After the succes in Copenhagen, Gobike is now available in Rotterdam. Our goal is to create a fine grid of dockingstations in the city, which makes door-to-door traveling possible.
Gobike targets a wide group of users, like tourists and other visitors who need a flexible way of traveling through the city, residents and of course the large group of commuters, who visit Rotterdam on a daily basis.
To rent a Gobike, you first have to register as a user here. With your username and PIN code you receive, you can login the tablet of a Gobike. At our website, you can search for a dockingstation nearby and see how many bikes are available. Returning the bike is possible at any Gobike dockingstation.
A Gobike subscription costs €15 (registration fee). This allows you to use the bikes for a year. You pay €0.03 per minute cycling and €0.01 for parking during your trip. Payment is possible via iDeal and soon via creditcard. This subscription is offered as an introduction. Soon there will be more options available.
