Yet another great reason to download Gaiyo! With Gaiyo you can now book, open and pay for Donkey Republic’s shared bikes. Mobility as a service (MaaS) has been lifted to a higher level. If you want to use a Donkey Bike, you can easily arrange that within the transport app Gaiyo.
The Donkey Republic’s bikes have been trackable with Gaiyo, but until recently you still needed the Donkey app to subsequently use the bikes. From now on, that’s different. By fully integrating Donkey Republic into Gaiyo, you can handle the booking, unlocking and payment very easily in your favorite transportation app.
Orange shared bikes
The orange Donkey Republic bikes can be found in Rotterdam, Utrecht, Amsterdam and Nieuw Vennep. To make use of a Donkey you do not need a reservation. You simply use Gaiyo to find the nearest pick-up/drop-off location and once there, you use the same app to open and close the bicycle lock via bluetooth.
Paying from your wallet
At Gaiyo, you pay for your Donkey ride in advance, from your wallet. If you ride for less time than you had predicted, you will automatically get the overpaid money refunded to your wallet. If you drive longer than expected, you pay the costs via direct debit. Easy right
About Gaiyo Gaiyo is a MaaS app that functions as a personal transportation assistant and was developed by a team of former TomTom employees. The app provides real-time insight into all available travel options and combinations, including departure and arrival times, travel time and costs. The app also gives you access to loads of nearby transport options and lets you plan, book and pay for shared transport. Moreover, Gaiyo is the cheapest street parking app in the Netherlands. In December 2020, De Volkskrant called Gaiyo ‘the most convenient and comprehensive transport app of the moment’.
