Bicycle Parking Lots To Appear Near Two Minsk Metro Stations

Bicycle parking lots are to appear near Nyamiha and Barysaŭski trakt stations in May this year.

Commute with pleasure!

The mentioned stations were chosen not by accident.

Over 600 locals took part in a public opinion poll conducted the Minsk Bicycle Society.

People shared their transport habits and expressed opinion on where the bike parking places are most necessary.

The poll results showed that Minskers want to have a possibility to combine both the bicycle and the metro.

In the near future three U-shaped bicycle parking lots will appear in the city as part of pilot projects.

The final decision was taken jointly by experts of the Minsk Bicycle Society and representatives of the Minsk metro.

Note that similar parking lots are already available near the stations Malinaŭka and Kamiennaja Horka.

Meanwhile, the citizens are awaiting a cityride bicycle rental network that may appear in Minsk this summer.

Currently there are two potential investors who are interested in a project.

Recall that last year the European Union has allocated €560,000 to encourage Belarusians to ride bicycles in cities.
