Rekola (bicycle sharing system)

Rekola (bicycle sharing system)

‘Rekola’ (could be translated as rebike) is a community bikesharing. It’s a very recent project which started in April 2014 and initiated by two young men from association Rekola.cz. They are using old bicycles which are repaired and painted in pink. It’s for everyone, without any bike stands, just find a bike in one of four Czech cities – Prague, Brno, Olomouc and Pardubice – and go! How does it work? Every rider has a mobile phone application where he or she can see the availability of pink bikes near their surroundings. You just come to a bike which has its own code, you write the code in the mobile application which shows you a code for the lock on the bike. And you can go! When you don’t need the bike anymore, you lock it in the nearest place. After locking it, you select in the phone application that you have returned the bike and specify its location.
