KINTO, the shared mobility subsidiary of Toyota, gets into electric bike sharing with Fifteen

By Fifteen
Since late 2023, KINTO has made available 600 shared electric bikes to residents and visitors of Copenhagen. After an extensive selection process, the Fifteen Fusion electric bike was chosen for its comfort, manoeuvrability, and connectivity, which facilitates fleet management. The service is operated by KINTO under a permit granted by the city. This service relies on a system of virtual stations that requires users to park their bikes at predetermined locations set by the city.

Fifteen for KINTO: a full-service B2B offering

In 2019, Toyota launched KINTO, a new brand dedicated to shared mobility. Primarily focused on car-sharing, with activities in several cities including Copenhagen, Aalborg, and Valenciennes, KINTO is now also venturing into active mobility with electric bike sharing.

To benefit from the expertise developed by Fifteen over more than 15 years, Kinto has opted for the All-in-one offering: KINTO electric bikes are managed directly through the Fifteen Control management system and accessible to users via Fifteen's white-label mobile application.


KINTO Share, in brief:

  • 600 Fifteen Fusion electric bikes
  • 1400 virtual stations
  • Operated by KINTO Denmark

Choosing quality

With 4 other micromobility operators already present in Copenhagen, KINTO chooses to stand out through quality.

To launch its bike sharing activity, KINTO takes a different approach from most micromobility operators by opting for a lighter bike, which is comfortable and assembled in Europe.
