Züri Velo - Publibike

04 Sep 2019
These are high-quality bikes with continuously variable hub gears and hydraulic disc brakes. Half of them are e-bikes which support a speed of 25km/h. You can go anywhere with these bikes and when we tested them they were actually fun to ride. The main downside compared to free-floating bikes is that you have to bring them back to an official station. For now there are some 50 stations and 300 bikes in the city, but over the next two years more and more stations will be opened (up to 150 with more than 2,000 bikes), so you should have at least one within walking distance almost anywhere in the city. You can locate the stations, book and unlock the bikes with its app (credit card needed). To bring back your bike, you just have to lock it again – but it only works at the stations.
