Post Bus launches the Publibike service CHF20 per annum Abo
 
1 Attachment(s)
Bike-sharing as a local urban traffic concept is currently experiencing a veritable boom in Europe and in America. Cities, such as Paris, London, Berlin, Milan, and Montreal have developed an extensive network of self-service bicycle stations for public use.


We are adopting this concept and enhance it by an easy self-service e-bike rental. Bicycles and e-bikes are available around the clock for self-service use at all e-bike-sharing stations. Customers are using a membership card to access all two-wheelers at all locations. Tourists and guests can rent bikes directly on site and pay by credit card.

Users have the option to purchase a subscription card or use our services spontaneously with a credit card (currently being implemented). Subscribers benefit from easier access and lower prices (incl. free 30-minute bicycle use).

This is what aggravates me about this country...it's a nice concept but why on earth can't they have one friggin rate instead of the sudoku price chart with various clauses and fine prints? :confused:

If travelling to Zürich, you can get Bikes ( including E-Bikes ) at no cost apart from a CHF20 refundable deposit, from end April to end October, free for an entire day ( up to 9pm ).

Ancient thread I know..

But I just wanted to say how great the scheme is.. For me, in my area it's 35chf per year, after that every rental under one hour is free..

Previously I took a bus from the village to the train station, buses each 30 mins.. On way home I had a 7 minute wait for the bus..

Now there's a bike station next to the bus stop so i take that and get there faster than the bus.. So i get the bonus of not waiting for the bus plus a little extra exersize..

Ok it's only 2km each way, 5 mins but i race myself so make it worth while.. I can get one of these hire bikes to 45km/h before my cadence just maxes out :)
