AlmatyBike automated bike rental system has been launched in Almaty
16 september 2016

Today AlmatyBike automated bike rental system has been launched in Almaty. The city hall has initiated the biking infrastructure project attracting the financial help of Samruk-Kazyn joint-stock company.

Metropolis Mayor Bauyrzhan Baybek was the first to test the bike station located in front of the city hall.

"This is a nice gift to the residents on the eve of the 1000 th anniversary of Almaty. Nowadays this type of transport is becoming more and more popular. The respective infrastructure is being created in the city including some bike paths. Together with an efficient bus transportation, subway development and private car restriction this is part of the transport system," B. Baybek said.

The Mayor added that such a system would improve city's attractiveness for tourists and make a positive impact on residents' health.

During the initial stage 50 bike stations with the capacity for 270 bikes were open in the central part of the city. Next year it is planned to increase the number of two-wheelers up to 2500 bikes.

It should be noted that the bikes are made of chrome-plated steel and equipped with a vandal-protection system. Each part of the bike is unique and doesn't fit any other bike.

In order to become a bike rental system client, one should buy a club card and pay a user fee. The first 30 minutes are free. The office selling club cards is located at Almaly Shopping Centre.

We remind you that Almaty is the 3 rd city in the country where a bike sharing project is implemented. A similar system is working in Astana and Shymkent .
