Lisbon's new e-bike scheme

  • mobility

Lisbon’s city planners are preparing sustainable mobility solutions that will tackle challenges such as decreasing air pollution and traffic congestion.

A new public bike service that offers 100 hire bicycles, two thirds of which are electric, is designed to encourage users to adopt an alternative, and clean form of transport to get around this hilly city.

The scheme is a beta test for a wider initiative that is planned to include 1,410 bikes (940 electric).
