More than 1,000 people have registered already as the City Council plans to add more locations to the current eight which are scattered around downtown Zagreb. The nextbike project allows registered users to rent bikes at an affordable price for short trips and leave them at one of the 8 stations located across the city. The bikes, which have also proved popular in other cities around the world, aim to reduce traffic congestion and relieve the burden on other forms of public transport.
Registration is free of charge with a one time activation fee of 10.50 euros. 30 minutes daily bike rental is free of charge, with every additional 60 minutes 1.10 euros. A ride longer than 5 hours and up to 24 hours is 10.50 euros.
