Bicycles and Public Transportation

Bike and Ride

All important traffic junctions - especially at subway stations - provide the opportunity to park bicycles (about 17,000 bicycle stands) if one wants to change to public transportation. Parking is free of charge: it is recommended, however, to lock the bicycle to prevent theft.
