About Monkey Donkey

Monkey Donkey is a young company pioneering electric cargobikes-sharing in Brussels. 

The cargobike is a solution to allow city dwellers to reduce the private car usage for a large part of their daily trips. By offering an answer to the two main obstacles to its use, price and secure storage, Monkey Donkey aims to revolutionise the use of cargo bikes in the city. 

As an organisation supported by the Brussels Region, we are still in beta form and currently have a fleet of 10 cargo bikes and long tails, spread over several municipalities in the capital. Launched in June 2021, we are currently working with local shops and are looking to expand the service by 2022.
