“NEXTBIKE KYIV” LLC was determined as a winner of the investment tender for the creation of a bike-sharing system in Kyiv in 2019.
The winner of the investment tender undertakes to create a network of 264 rental points of 2,000 bicycles. Bicycle rental points should be located in ten districts of Kyiv. The estimated cost of the bike-sharing network project is about UAH 33 million.
