New! Electric bike rental service in Jerusalem
Dozens of rental locations and attractive rates: Jerusalem bike rental project website launched
The Municipality of Jerusalem, through Eden, the municipal economic company and FSM, unveiled today (Monday 19.4) the map of rental points and rental rates, as part of the launch of the Europan system - the municipal project of bike rental.
During the first stage, 200 bicycles - 80 classic bicycles and 120 electrically assisted bicycles (VAE) - adapted to the urban topography and equipped with maximum safety will be made available to the public. These bicycle rental stations are innovative in that they do not require any connection to the electrical and communication infrastructure, which makes them flexible and economical in electrical energy.
According to the municipality, the pricing for the bicycle rental service in the city will be attractive. Bike rental will be priced on a one-off basis or on the basis of a three-month or one-year subscription. Discounts on the purchase of subscriptions will be given to Jerusalem residents and students.
Price packages for the project were also launched:
For the first use: 4 shekels + 20 agourot per minute for regular bikes, and 60 agourot for electric bikes. Monthly and annual subscriptions will also be available at attractive prices and a discount for Jerusalem card holders.
