“It will widen an already-existing scheme of shared e-bikes,” said spokesperson of Trnava townhall Pavol Tomašovič, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

Trnava started to test shared e-bikes last autumn; however, they have been in actual operation since March 1. The first weeks proved were are not enough e-bikes. The first 50 bikes were gifted to Trnava the developer of the Arboria apartment compound.

The main idea behind bike-sharing is to offer people quick transport within Trnava while decreasing the burden on the traffic infrastructure, said Tomašovič.

The renting of bikes is free for the first 15 minutes, then it is necessary to pay according to the price list. The payment will be deducted from the €20 entrance fee.
