Rental bikes return

Ben Kendall 2012-03-27

Styr & Ställ, Gothenburg's bike loaning system, returns on April 1. More than 700 bikes will be available from the 52 stations throughout the city.

Last year between April 1 and October 31, over 20,000 subscriptions were sold and the season was considered a success by JC Decaux, the company behind Styr & Ställ.

"This year's goal is to sell 40,000 subscriptions," said Carina Herly, information manager at JC Decaux, to Göteborgs-Posten (GP).

New for this season it will also be possible to connect your Västtrafik travel card with the Styr & Ställ system. Exact information on how to do this is on its way, according JC Decaux.

At this stage all stations are located on the south side of the river. But according to Carina Herly the aim is to eventually have stations on Hisingen also.

New Styr & Ställ stations:
Sahlgrenska Norra
Wavrinskys plats
Hållplats Rosenlund
