July 11, 2019 – Although the City of Split will officially open the public bicycle system on Thursday at 6 pm, the city’s citizens and tourists could ride public bicycles located at the stations on the Riva, at the Joker Shopping Center, the Sukoišana bus station and Stari Plac since Wednesday.

As part of the pilot project “Split Parking”, which has taken over all the work, a total of 20 electric and 30 classic bicycles will be free to use at eight frequently visited locations in the city.

The project will last 30 months and aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the overburdened areas of urban traffic in Split.

“On Thursday, July 11th at 6 pm, we invite all citizens and tourists who reside in the city of Split to attend the opening of the public bicycle system within the EU project REMEDIO. The Mayor of the City of Split Mr. Andro Krstulović Opara will be in front of the church of Sv. Frane on the Riva to officially open the public bicycle system, and everyone present will be able to ride the bikes for free. Come and check out all the benefits of a public bicycle system, and drive a classic or electric bicycle completely free of charge,” said the City of Split in their announcement.

The public bicycle stations will be available to citizens and tourists on the Riva in front of Sv. Frane, at the parking lot of Split 3, at the Žnjan plateau, in the parking lot beside Joker, at Sukoišanska, near Stari Plac, and the student housing at Spinut and the Campus.

The total project value was 267,500.00 euro, of which 85% was financially covered for the City of Split.
