In 2021, Warsaw Veturilo will undergo a complete redesign. There will be new stations, tariffs and facilities for cyclists. There will probably also be new bicycle models. What can they look like? Here is what they showcased this week.
New Veturilo after 2020
Intensive preparations are underway for the new launch.
As part of the negotiation procedure, companies dealing with bike sharing systems present us with their latest solutions and technologies. We want to gain the greatest knowledge about products available on the market and their pros and cons. Four companies have declared their willingness to participate: GeoVelo, BikeU, Nextbike Polska and the Consortium of Orange Polska and ROOVEE
There were also three examples of bicycle designs available at the company’s disposal were presented. – These are examples of bikes on offer from operators. They were not designed especially for us – emphasizes the representative for bicycle companies
Resident feedback: it is important that the bikes are lighter
For the last several years the people of Warsaw have been using city bikes provided by Nextbike Polska.
Bicycles are quite pleasant, although heavy – despite this they usually roll well, without much effort. The position is comfortable for me, I also like the fact that they have a dynamo lamp. I hope for the new bikes be lighter than the current ones – it will be better
This quote comes from a Warsaw residents who could submit their comments during special social consultations and through dedicated surveys.
We were able to collect over 5,000 surveys on the current bikes, we also received over 700 comments by email. In total, we spent 40 hours on meetings with residents. All entries are now being reviewed. A report summarizing the consultations will be prepared in the coming weeks
