The fee for using rental bicycles for the entire season will rise by five euros compared to last year, but will cover both cities in the metropolitan region.
The administration of Espoo decided to introduce this summer a system of city bicycle rental. Now there are negotiations regarding sponsorship of the project.
Bicycle rental season will begin in Helsinki and Espoo at different times due to the fact that the authorities of the capital decided to open the season in April on the basis of last year's users’ reviews. The exact date will depend on the weather conditions and the cleaning streets schedule. In Espoo, it will be necessary to install new bicycle stations, so the season will begin only on May 2.
