FlexBike, which is based in the French town of Montpellier was created in 2007 by the team behind the successful car-sharing company, FLEX'AUTO.

FLEX'AUTO is a provider of car-sharing services (self-service car rental for short trips) and currently operates the popular MODULAUTO service in Montpellier in partnership with the city's transport company TAM (Transports de l'Agglomération de Montpellier).

Our aim is to provide a choice of urban transport solutions to local authorities and businesses who are wish to respond positively to current environmental and social challenges by providing sustainable and innovative transport services.

In 2008, FlexBike was chosen by the Communauté d'Agglomération de La Rochelle to provide equipment and software for the extension and automation of its famous Vélos Jaunes (Yellow bikes) city-bike service. Created in 1974 by the pioneering Mayor Michel Crépeau , the Vélos Jaunes of La Rochelle is one of the world's first city-bike services.
