Swiss Firms Launch Public Bike Share Program

PubliBike project launched in cooperation with PostBus and Swiss Federal Railways

Published: 20-Aug-2011

PubliBike is currently undergoing a test phase in Lucerne; the goal is for the service to be available throughout Switzerland.

Bike hire itself is nothing new in outdoorsy, ecologically-minded Switzerland; what is different about this service is that it caters especially to spontaneous cyclists going for quick rides.

“PubliBike is just for short-term rentals – for a few hours within the city or over short distances,” project manager Mirjam Wietlisbach told swissinfo.ch. She works for Rent a Bike, which has launched the PubliBike project in cooperation with PostBus and Swiss Federal Railways.
