MonaBike : the new electric bike sharing scheme in the Principality
On Friday 12 July, H.S.H. Prince Albert II officially launched MonaBike, the new electric bike sharing scheme in the Principality and the latest step in promoting soft mobility.
The scheme aims to encourage cycling in the Principality, to improve coverage within the country, and to increase the capacity of the existing bike stations.
Thanks to close collaboration between the Prince’s Government and CAM, which manages the service, from Saturday 13 July the electric bike sharing scheme will offer 300 bikes from 32 bike stations, compared with around 100 bikes from 17 stations previously.
With the introduction of a smartphone app, the service, which remains available to regular subscribers, can now also be accessed by people who are just visiting the Principality.
The roll-out also includes the installation of 5 bike stations within the Principality’s public car parks and, from September, the first to be introduced beyond Monaco’s borders, with 3 stations in the town of Beausoleil, opening up an opportunity to extend the service to other neighbouring communities.
