The concept has been in place other parts of Europe. For example, Cargoroo operates in the Netherlands and Leuven in Belgium.

It’s not known what price point Bleeper will use. Cargoroo use a free subcription system as only charge per use with €1,00 as a start fee and €3,50 per hour / €0,06 per minute after that.

IKEA stores in a number of countries also offer cargo bicycles to customers and some cities like Utrecht in the Netherlands offers cargo bicycle rental to businesses and residents.
