Hourbike was formed orignally to address the needs of large corporates and business parks that needed an automated solution to providing bike hire for its residents. A relationship was thus formed with the Homeport company to provide a dedicated automated bike rental solution for this market.
The growth of public bicycle systems in European cities led Hourbike to work with Homeport to further develop the bike rental solution for on-street use. The resulting solution is both functional and elegant, catering particularly for environments that are restricted in space or where flexibility is required. The benefit of bike sharing schemes are now being felt worldwide.
As an experienced bike sharing operator, Hourbike can provide a complete solution for cities that wish to outsource the develoment and management of their bike sharing scheme, or for organisations that wish to operate a bike rental system themselves but do not currently have the equipment or experience to do so.
