Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 9, 2020 – A public electric bicycle system – RiCikleta, which allows citizens to rent 28 bicycles located at four terminals in the city, has been recently presented in Jadranski Trg Square in Rijeka.

RiCikleta is a smart electric bicycle with GPS tracking. The bikes are rented by scanning the QR code, that is, paying the rental through a QRPay code.

The first bicycles were ridden by Rijeka cyclist Vladimir Miholjević and Deputy Mayor Marko Filipović.

Renting a bike costs 10 kuna per hour and the maximum time of use is three hours. Bicycles will be available for use to persons over the age of 18 and the rental ends once the bike has been properly returned to the stand.

The total value of the project is HRK 1.3 million, most of which had come from the Rijeka city budget, while HRK 195,280 was provided by the Ministry of Tourism.

The project is about introducing the trend of micro and smart mobility in urban transport, which contributes to the development of alternative forms of sustainable mobility.
