Donkey Republic is a global self-service, 24/7 bike rental.

Use this app to find and unlock a bike near you by connecting to the electronic lock on the bike via Bluetooth. You can rent a bike for short rides or even up to two weeks, and during your rental, you can unlock and lock your bike with your phone as many times as you want. If you’re having too much fun, you can also extend the rental in the app.
To end your rental, you must bring the bike to a drop-off location shown on the map in the app and click "End rental".

Absolute freedom and sustainable mobility!

Heads up:
When you lock the bike, the app will momentarily turn on your GPS so that the system locates the bike - it helps you and the next riders to find it. Keep in mind though that continued use of GPS running in the background can drain your battery.

A beautiful—albeit clunky at first—way to explore a city.


To be frank, it was a bit difficult for my mother and I to find two bikes in the same place that we could both connect to (as the ones parked were connected to other phones and taken). We were getting quite annoyed and were about to conclusively assign a 1 star rating when it finally began to work...and then, Donkey Republic began to shine.

When you finally get your bike, this becomes a fantastic and simple (and for Copenhagen, moderately cheap) app that allows you to discover a city in a unique way.

I would recommend to developers a way to streamline the process of finding a bike and making it easier. If the McDonalds near my location says there are 5 bikes, it would be lovely if there actually were the 5 bikes the app states, and not 4 bikes that are taken and 1 free to use (especially considering we were 2).

Overall, a special and good app.

Best way to see a city!

Stevey -D

We have used Donkey Republic a few times now and we have never been disappointed. The bikes are in good condition and the app makes it super easy to pick up and drop off them off. Forget busses and Uber, this is how you should experience a city 👌

Worst experience of any bikeshare


I have used bikeshare all around the world. Donkey’s app is truly awful, it took 5 tries to rent the bike and 5 tries to lock it back up.

It tried to have me call support many times to get it fixed. Rampant with “API errors” which ruin experience.
