The eastern Croatian city of Osijek is moving ahead in its aim to promote urban mobility and green transition. 

In addition to the modernisation of the tram infrastructure, which is in full swing, it is also actively implementing the project of a shared bicycle system.

In the autumn, bike stations with bikes were set up all over the city and are available to Osijek residents and tourists, who can check out the beauties of the city this way. 

These are 50 electric and 125 mechanical bicycles, which are installed at 25 stations, and which contribute to solving the problem of traffic jams and air pollution. 

Using and renting an eMobi bike works on a simple principle. Users only need to download the Nexbike mobile application, choose the method of payment (via bank card, SMS or Internet banking), as well as the type of card, upon presentation of an identity document.

An annual ticket costs 200 kuna which includes unlimited rides of half an hour every day. A weekly ticket costs 100 kuna, whilst daily rent is possible – after 10 kuna registration, the first 30 minutes on a mechanical bike is 5 kuna, and on an electric bike 10 kuna.

After registration, it is enough to press the mobile device, scan the QR code at the station, after which the lock on one of the bikes is automatically unlocked, and the user can start their ride.

While riding, the user can take a break and secure the bike, and then return it to the station by lowering the electronic lock.

The bike is then automatically checked out, and if the user does not return the bike to the official station, he receives an automatic message about the payment of additional costs, which optimises the cost of maintenance and safety of the bike.
