Joint bike-sharing scheme started

Esztergom and its Slovak neighbour Sturovo on the other side of the Danube launched a new bicycle share scheme on Saturday, with the help of Ft 300 million from the US’s Interreg programme.

T-Systems Magyarország was the general contractor, while the bicycles and docking stations were provided by Esztergom-based bike manufacturer Neuzer.

Under the public bike sharing scheme dubbed “Maria Valéria Bike,” 60 conventional and 45 electric bikes will be available, said project leader Bálint Kiss.

Esztergom’s existing bike sharing scheme will be integrated into the new rental system.

There will be 20 stations, 278 docking stations and 165 bikes in the two cities.

There will be one-day, three-day and seven-day tickets, as well as a six-month pass available for Ft 4,500, and a full-year pass for Ft 6,500.
