In July 2018, we launched Bergen’s first permanent, year-round city bicycle scheme with 76 stations and 400 bicycles. Bergen City Bike has proven to be hugely popular, with a million yearly rides distributed among 38 800 city cyclists. In just under two years, the facility was extended to 101 stations and 900 city bikes.
The technology for bicycles, racks and locks are the same as in Trondheim, ie the lock is on the bike. This makes the system very flexible, with the possibility of pausing tours and geo-fencing of areas where a fixed stand is not possible.
Bergen bysykkel has 6 permanent employees and a warehouse with workshop in Fabrikkgaten 7.
