Nextbike system of public bicycles present in over 30 cities in Croatia

first_imgTwo friends, Krešimir Dvorski and Ante Gustin, bravely and proactively set out six years ago with the story of public bicycles promoting integrated public transport. At the very least, the whole road was thorny, even ahead of time in line with the slow reaction and interest of the market, but today, when they have gone through the hardest road and endured the arduous breaking of ice, the time of great expansion of public bicycle systems is slowly coming. From this summer, after many years of waiting, nextbike will be available to citizens and tourists in Split and Dugopolje, as new nextbike locations. Today, on the sixth birthday of the nextbike – public bicycle system, the cake is being cut in more than 30 cities in Croatia and the region, and what follows is integration with other stakeholders in public transport and the expansion of the electric bicycle network. Sit down, drive and enjoy the indigenous tourist offer, what do you say? “In the past year, we have grown from 20 to more than 30 cities. More and more cities and companies are investing in sustainable mobility, so we can say that this is not a trend but a long-term strategy. Users of new forms of transport have become a critical mass in creating public opinion. The need for faster and more favorable movement from point A to point B with the use of the most modern technologies has been met. With the improvement of the user experience and the introduction of the latest generation of bicycles with a built-in electric motor to support the driver (pedelec), it is time to realize our vision of integrating public transport via a mobile application”, Said the founders of the project, Krešimir Dvorski and Ante Gustin.center_img Integrated public transport is imperative, especially in tourism as well as larger cities, and visitors and tourists can use the bus, train, car and public bicycle system as the charms of combined transport. Nextbike system of public bicycles in Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina today has more than 50.000 registered users who have recognized it as the most affordable, fastest, healthiest and most fun transport. The public bicycle system is certainly a great complement to the tourist product for tourist destinations, and I would venture to say that it should be the standard tourist offer today, which unfortunately it is not yet. Imagine that the whole island of Krk is connected by bikesharing stations or the entire Istrian coast, and why not Slavonia from Baranja to Ilok, all connected with the local tourist offer.last_img
