Zagreb will join European cities London, Paris, Helsinki and Amsterdam by offering public bikesharing. From next summer the Croatian capital will offer affordable access to bicycles for short trips in the city.
Locals and tourists will be able to rent the bikes for a very small price and there will be between 15-20 bikes placed at various locations in the city such as Trg Stjepan Radic, Bundek, Maksimir and the main train station.
Users will be able to purchase a pre-paid card or use smart phones which will give the users a code to unlock the bikes to use. The public bikesharing concept started in China in 2008 and has spread across Europe.
