Virtual station based bike sharing schemes that allow users to take bikes for short trips as well as lease bikes for longer periods can greatly improve quality of life and reduce CO2 emissions.

We work to support cities in the challenging of building the transportation services of the future. Bicycles combined with rail will have to be a core element in the cities of the future. Additionally our service addresses the following four challenges:

  • Reducing emission
  • Reducing congestiom
  • Improving public health
  • Better use of public space


We leverage data-driven technology to deliver dependable bike-sharing services to cities and citizens. Our end-to-end solutions integrate with public transportation systems and our virtual station based system enables us to optimize the use of existing infrastructure while providing flexible services – effectively addressing the challenges of both dockbased and free-floating systems.


We mean it when we say that every ride counts. We measure diligently our
impact on CO2 savings, congestions savings and health benefit. We have a
methodology developed together with Dresden University

In 2022, Donkey Republic made a substantial contribution by:

  • Saving 573 tonnes of CO2
  • 580.000 EUR in congestion savings
  • 11.5 million EUR in health benefits
