Nextbike Split: The Public Bicycle Rental System

Since the first introduction of the bicycle rental system in Split back in the summer of 2019, Nextbike has significantly expanded its efforts to establish Split as a bike-friendly city. In 2020 and early 2021 more than 40 bike stations have been put up throughout the city enabling easy access to rental bikes throughout the city.

Currently, the company offers a choice of classic bikes and electric bikes. The first come with the cost of 5 HRK per half an hour, while the latter cost 10 HRK per half an hour.

If you plan on using the bikes multiple times, Nextbike also offers a subscription based model that works either on a weekly basis (100 HRK per seven days) or on an annual basis (200 HRK per 365 days). Both subscriptions come with unlimited number of free rides for rides under 30 minutes, while rides over 30 minutes are charged according to the regular pricing (5 HRK per 30 mins for classic and 10 HRK per 30 mins for electric bikes).

How it works?

The easiest way to access the Nextbike system of bicycle rentals it to have a mobile phone and a credit card. In order to access the Nextbike system all you need to have is a mobile phone and a credit card.
