Bicycle Rental Opens in Bled
In total, there will be 4 rental stations, which currently have 24 bicycles available. The project of the tour operator Turizem Bled and the municipality of Bled is called Bled Green Ways.
According to the Deputy Manager of Turizem Bled Matjaž Berčon, the budget of the bicycle rental project is 70 thousand euros. The company financed the opening of three rental stations and the municipality contributed to opening one more station.
Matjaž Berčon says that they plan to participate in the Ministry of Infrastructure’s tender for the implementation of an integrated transport strategy. This will ensure opening of two more rental stations and purchase of new bicycles.
In Bled, they expect that the system will be used more often by tourists. However, the authors of the project want to popularize the bicycle rental system among local residents. Not so long ago, they prepared presentations for the information centre Triglavska roža in Bled, Zasip and Ribne, where they talked about an automated, practical and environmentally friendly travel system.
