Trnava bikesharing has thirty new shared electric bicycles
Another 30 yellow and black electric bikes have been added to the fleet. They were purchased by the municipality of Trnava and are marked by the City logo. The first fifty electric bikes were donated to the municipality by the company Lucron. After a service inspection, the electric bikes will be gradually made available to the public, starting from today.
Approximately five hundred people are currently registered in the Arboria Bike system. Electric bikes are widely used during both working days and at weekends, so an increase in their number is a welcome step.
“There is very good feedback from users regarding the shared electric bikes. Many residents use them for transport to and from work. However, the bikes are on the move from morning to evening, since people use them to go shopping or to the town, as well as for trips to Kamenný Mlyn,“ says Andrej Habinak from the City office in Trnava, which manages Trnava bikesharing. “People who use the electric bikes have created a Facebook group to communicate. The users can give advice to new members, inform each other on current events, and provide us system providers with valuable feedback,“ he added.
Anyone older than 18 can join the ranks of electric bike users, regardless of their permanent residence. Registration is possible on arboriabike.sk, via the free mobile application Freebike, or personally in the First Contact Office (FCO) in the City of Trnava Office, Trhová Street No. 3. To register, the potential user must pay a sum of 20-EUR for use of the system and as a credit to pay for their borrowing until the end of season. The system can be accessed after a contract is signed in person in the FCO.
Very soon, it will be possible to make payments online at arboriabike.sk. However, the user must still make a personal visit of the City of Trnava office due to legislation.
After successful registration, the user can find a free electric bike in the streets of Trnava using the Freebike application and enjoy fast and comfortable transport throughout the town.
All necessary information is available at arboriabike.sk, and the name of the Facebook group is Arboria Bike – Bikesharing Trnava.
