A Global Platform for P2P Cargo Bike-Sharing

Want to share your cargo bike? Or borrow one?

cargo-bike-sharing

Velogistics has the plan figured out with a straight-forward mapping system. People who want to rent or share their cargo bikes post photos and short descriptions of their bikes on the Velogistics website. Bikes can be shared for free or rented at a set price. The location of the bikes is easily found using pins on the Google Maps system. The Velogistics team also has members that scout out broken and abandoned bikes, and refurbishes them to be used as cargo bikes. Additionally, they are building an open-source wiki dedicated to care and maintenance of cargo bikes.
