BICIKE(LJ)

Easily around the city centre.

AROUND THE CITY WITH BICIKE(LJ)

It's an efficiently established piece of cycling infrastructure, through which we reduce harmful emissions, improve the air and enable users quick and easy movement around the city. The scheme also promotes a healthy lifestyle. Watch the video we shot with our Bicike(LJ)s.

Carefree cycling

May 2011 saw Ljubljana introduce a public bike-sharing system, which is essentially identical to systems in use in numerous other European cities and around the world. Users have 380 bikes available at 38 stations in and around the city centre. The system encourages users to borrow a bike for a journey and then return it to a station. The first hour is free, after which a usage fee is charged.

Implementing this project brought us the Urban Visionary 2011 award and the Information Strawberry prize for the best achievement in the information society field in 2011/12. In the future we will broaden the BicikeLJ system further and thus enable city residents still more bike loans.

THE BRAVE PERSIST EVEN IN WINTER

BicikeLJ is a city project that supplements the public transport infrastructure with an environmentally friendly and inexpensive bike-sharing system. As the bikes are exposed to the elements all year round, they are especially durable and resilient.

BY BIKE TO REDUCING CO2

After the system had been in operation for a year, each bike had been borrowed 7.5 times a day on average, BicikeLJ system users had circled the equator 57 times and thus contributed to reducing CO2 emissions by 500 tons in a single year (under the same conditions, residents of a city of 4 million would have reduced their CO2 by 7,150 tons).
