The season of bike-sharing, including Velobike bike share stations, is extended due to numerous requests of Muscovites, as was announced by Deputy Moscow Mayor, Head of the Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov

Usually, the cycling season ends on 1 November, but this year you can take advantage of the city bike infrastructure until 17 November inclusive.

Today, there are 530 bike rental stations in Moscow offering 5,000 bicycles. This season, the number of e-bikes has increased almost twice, up to 390 units. According to Maxim Liksutov, more than 30,000 trips are made on rented bikes per day.

Velobike bike-sharing stations were opened in Moscow in 2013. First, there were only 79 stations at the Boulevard Ring and Frunzenskaya Embankment (550 bikes). In 2018, more than 4,000 bicycles were available for rent at 430 stations.  New bike-sharing points were opened near metro stations and the Moscow Central Ring, parks, as well as in remote areas of the city. 

Last season, city bikes were rented more than four million times.
