BikeMi in Milano
Finally Milano has its own "BikeMi" bike sharing system, like many other cities worldwide. The service is managed by the American communication and advertising colossus Clear Channel, as has already happened in Saragozza, Stockholm, Oslo, Washington and San Francisco.
During the months of November & December, this service will be explained in various points of the city: Piazza del Duomo near the Cathedral, and in Piazza San Babila.The Milanese bike sharing will be launched with approximately 1,200 bikes.
The bicycle model will be nearly the same as the one used in Barcelona. Only the colour might change from the Spanish flame red to the many shades of orange, which remind of the Milanese public transport's fleet.
The environmental-friendly vehicles will be provided with a padlock and a hooking system soldered to the frame for little columns.
Occasional users will cycle around thanks to a magnetic card, according to a tariff that goes by hour, while habitual riders will have the chance to buy a favourable season ticket.
For more information, be sure to stop at one of the information points promoting this new transport alternative.
