Public bicycles have been made available in Łódź last weekend (30.04.) and already have proven more popular than originally assumed. Nextbike Polska, the company operating the city bikes, says that Łódź city bikes could be more popular than when the company launched the same service in Warsaw 4 years ago.
4 days after the launch of the Łódź city bikes, the company operating the public bicycle system, Nextbike Polska, has revealed that the bikes in Łódź are more popular than originally thought. As of Wednesday (04.05.), 24,000 rentals have been registered in the city bike’s system while a total of 16,000 users have signed up for the service on the Łódź City Bike’s website.
Tomasz Wojtkiewicz, CEO of Nextbike Polska, says – the interest in the Łódź city bikes is even greater than we thought. When in 2012 we opened our largest system in Warsaw, we registered 120,000 rentals within the 1 first month. It is very likely that the inhabitants of Łódź will beat this record – Wojtkiewicz suspects.
So far, the most popular stations of bike rental and return are:
– Piotrkowska / Piłsudskiego
– Piotrkowska / 6 Sierpnia
– Zachodnia – Manufaktura
– Piotrkowska / Tuwima
– Piotrkowska – OFF Piotrkowska Center
