Grab a bike wherever you want, whenever you want. Unlock any shared bike with your phone. End your rental by closing the lock at any drop-off location.
The current innovations are centralised platforms with a lack of democracy and care of privacy. On one hand people like a smooth service like Uber but on the other hand, people are on the lookout for an alternative that is also great for humanity.
You can help building the framework or share your bike. Yes You Can Contribute!
Openness and citizen data sovereignty
We love open source! Everything we will create will be available on Gitlab immediately. We build on open source software.
The 4 ways to contribute
You can co-create Common Bike. We plan to be a Decentralized Autonomous Organization in the near future where you can earn bounties with tasks for coding, testing, designing, security checks, community building and more. If you already interested lets have a talk at our chat.
When our platform is ready bike owners can share their bike(s) on the platform. We are always open to get in touch with bike rental companies, municipalities & organizations that are sharing bikes. Are you already providing some of your citizens or employees a bike? In the future you can use the Common Bike token to provide them a bike without all the hassle.
We are always open to getting in touch with developers who love to contribute a bit voluntarily and electric bicycle lock manufacturers and related open source projects such as identity & decentralized data storage providers. Get in touch at our chat.
We are moving from Github to Gitlab and are experimenting with our Solid POD server.
We plan to have the first version of the framework and Common Bike token.
We created the first community activiteites with Twitter & Meetup.
We experimented with IoT bike lockers together with the The Things Network LoRa, Permanent Future Lab and Seats2meet communities.
We had a small pilot with Easyfiets in Leiden.
We had a small pilot in Leiden, The Netherlands. Now we are taking the next steps to build the framework for a decentral, community driven and 100% open source bike sharing experience. In the meantime you can find shared bikes in The Netherlands with openbike.nlLets keep in touch
