As Morski writes, as part of the wider “Choose a Bike/Biraj biciklu” project, the City of Split has started preparatory work for the installation of a terminal in the area of the Marjan Forest Park. Marjan public bike terminals will be installed at five different locations on Marjan in the following areas: Spinutska vrata, Bene, Kasjuni, ZOO vrt and on the Prva vidilica plateau.
Just a few days ago, the installation of the public bicycle system at the Spinut Gate began. This is the first of five Marjan public bike system locations where bikes will be made fully available at the Marjan Forest Park. It is otherwise the first and largest such system in Croatia and the entire immediate region. Bikes within this public system are available to users throughout the day, and can be rented via a terminal, mobile application (app) or by using a smart card (pametna kartica).
In addition to the City of Split, the public bicycle system is expanding across Central Dalmatia, more precisely spanning the areas of Trogir, Kastela, Solin, Podstrana, Klis, Dugopolje and Dicmo with a total of 41 new terminals and 242 bicycles for public use.
The great value of the praiseworthy “Choose a bicycle/Braj biciklu” project is that a study of the potential of the development of proper and safe bike paths/roads will be prepared, as will a basic document for the development of an integrated system of bicycle paths in the area of the agglomeration itself.
The total value of the entire project stands at an enormous 13,609,435.83 kuna. The project was co-financed by the European Union (EU) from the Cohesion Fund with 10,893,396.68 kuna as part of the ITU Call “Urban Mobility – The Development of the Public Bicycle System in the Split Urban Agglomeration”.
