History of Bike Sharing
Bike sharing is a relatively new market that is just beginning to take off within the U.S. First adopters in this space started out using kiosk systems, but over the past few years this model has proven to be very expensive & highly subsidized, provides low density and is not self sustainable in most markets. Because of this we have seen a recent shift to rogue systems, or “leave your bike anywhere,” and while this is proving to be a more affordable solution, it also incorporates a lot of risk due to being unregulated, lacks management, safety, and has caused much confusion among users and operators.
How we’re Different
Recognizing a need to find a happy median between Kiosk and Rogue systems, Koloni has developed the first solution to market with the perfect blend of kiosk and rogue systems. In turn this is creating a long-term sustainable model for our partners that also provides a great user experience. We know every partner is different and that’s why we’ve created ‘Smart Systems’ to meet the needs of all our clients.
Through our mobile app technology, smart bikes & racks, bluetooth locks, and geofenced hubs we have developed the most advanced and user friendly system in the world. Whether you are looking to rent a bike, or a recreational item through our Koloni Kube, we always have the end user and our partners in mind.
