Bikesharing in Ostrava

Bikesharing in Ostrava

May 03, 2018 01:34

The City of Ostrava is encouraging citizens to become personally involved in helping to improve the environment, raising awareness of how each of us can play our own individual role. One of the ways in which Ostrava’s citizens can actively contribute to a reduction in emissions – while also benefiting their own health and fitness – is by cycling rather than using motor vehicles. To ensure that everybody has access to bicycles, the City has joined forces with the Rekola company to launch a bikesharing project. As part of the project, 180 bikes are available to borrow from (and return to) 39 bike stations located at various points in the central part of Ostrava.
