Post Bus launches the Publibike service CHF20 per annum Abo

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?

Adrian, from the given URL above, you can see the map.

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 ).

Re: Post Bus launches the Publibike service CHF20 per annum Abo

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
