The costs for accessing the service are affordable: according to the first news will be offered annual subscriptions at 25 euros and will also be available reduced subscriptions (daily or timetable).
The service will be managed by Amat, which in collaboration with TMR will bring bicycles in the city in the second half of October and will take care of the dislocation throughout the city. The places where you can rent and return the bike have been defined these days: they will be over 30 and will host all from 10 to 20 bikes. It has been announced that, in order to avoid theft and damage, each bicycle will be equipped with a GPS locator.

Meanwhile in the city, the works of making it safe, maintenance and realization of the cycle tracks of the center have started, interventions already announced at the beginning of the year.
