Seven new have been inaugurated!

22.09.2022

With today's inauguration of the new bike station in Piazza Risorgimento, all seven new stations of La BiGi, Bergamo's bike sharing service, are live.

The inauguration is part of the events planned for European Mobility Week and makes the city's sustainable mobility even more accessible thanks to the 57 new docks and 40 bikes.

These stations have been financed by the City of Bergamo, bringing to 38 the total number of physical stations available to users, plus another 30 virtual stations that complete the service.

The new stations are in Via Risorgimento and Via Curie in Loreto, Via Carducci intersection with Via Leopardi in the San Paolo neighbourhood, Goisis Park in Monterosso, Via Giacomo Radini Tedeschi and Don Orione in Redona, and Esselunga in Celadina. 
 Furthermore, with the completion of the road works, Piazza Matteotti virtual station has been converted to a physical station, with 19 new docs.

This latest extension improves the coverage of the service, which now extends from the city center to the more peripheral areas. At each station, it is possible to release the bicycle either in "station-based" mode or in "free-floating" mode.
