As part of a Vilnius City Municipality initiative, JCDecaux will open
24 bike stations in the city center that will offer riders more than
200 bikes for rent. Investments into the project have reached 6.4 mil.
At the rental stations, bikes will be available for rent 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week. The stations will be distributed at distances of
300-400m from each other. The bike rental season will extend to October
Every year, the amount of available bike rental stations will grow.
Next year, the amount of available bike rental stations will increase to
36, and the amount of available bike – to 300.
Those wishing to use the service will have to pay a 20 Lt
registration fee. The first half hour of rental will be free. The second
half hour will cost 0.45 Euros, the third – 1.45 Euros, the fourth –
Cyclists will be able to use the system by connecting their Vilnietis
card or with a CycloCity card, which will cost 8.7 Euros. The rental
fees will be paid out of this initial value.
This bicycle rental model was first introduced in Vilnius in 2003.
Similar systems now exist in Paris, Dublin, Brussels and 64 other cities
around the world.
