Fifteen has created the first bike-sharing system that allows any length of rental. Local communities of any size can therefore offer cycling services to suit their area and promote daily bike discovery for all citizens.

You just choose and the Fifteen electric bike will do the rest.
Self-service short- and long-term rentals
From 2023, the Auxerrois Conurbation will offer its inhabitants a network of self-service electric bikes available to rent for one-off trips or to book for private use for several months.
Electric bike stations have been installed in all the conurbation's towns to give residents fully independent access to this mobility option, at any time.
Nouvelle-Aquitaine region (France)
Short and medium term rentals, at train stations and in town centres
Based on a model which has seen the bike achieve 29% of modal share in the Netherlands, the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region is seeking to go further by offering passengers on the TER Royan-Angoulême line a low-carbon mobility solution for the initial and final phases of their journeys.
This is even better than in the Netherlands as the bikes are electric bikes and pick-ups and drop-offs are all managed independently through a mobile app.
Self-service electric bikes, short-term rental
The Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis (AMP) is very ambitious to develop active transport modes in its area.
So when it was upgrading its self-service cycling provision, AMP made clear choices: wider coverage, more stations, electric bikes only and a modern rental experience.
Soon to be deployed
Self-service electric bikes, long-term rental
Long-term rental options have proved highly effective in less densely populated areas.
With the Fifteen electric bike and a lightweight self-service terminal, smaller urban areas can offer electric bikes for long-term rental, with minimal operational management.
The daily management of Fifteen's fleets of electric vehicles is easier thanks to their embedded connectivity and the Fifteen Control operational management platform.Discover Fifteen Control

Frequently asked questions
Who is the Fifteen electric bike for?

Can I offer the Fifteen electric bike to the residents of my town?
Fifteen powers public bike rental services in more than 30 cities in France and worldwide.

Depending on its size, a bike service can be managed by the local authority, in partnership with a local service provider or it can be delegated to the public transport operator.

How much does a fleet of Fifteen electric bikes cost?
Can the Fifteen electric bike be used without charging stations?
With geolocation, continuous connectivity and a removable battery, the Fifteen electric bike can be operated with and without charging stations. For reasons of operational efficiency, Fifteen recommends lightweight charging stations with the capacity to charge up to 10 electric bikes on the equivalent of a single car parking space. If there are no charging stations, the operator can replace the batteries directly in the field and ensure tidy parking thanks to the creation of virtual charging stations directly in the Fifteen Control management interface.
Is the Fifteen e-bike also suitable for long-term rental?
The Fifteen electric bike is the first bike available for any duration of rental, from a few minutes to several months, from a self-service station or, if the local authorities wishes, from an agency, for long-term rental only. This multi-purpose electric bike offers the advantage that it can meet all needs, from occasional to regular uses, in a way that is easily readable by users. It also means that the local authority or operator only has a single fleet to maintain.
