Citybee car and bicycle sharing scheme expanded into Klaipeda FEZ
Five CityBee bicycle pick-up & drop-off points were launched in Klaipėda FEZ, and the CityBee car sharing scheme’s operating area has been expanded into the free economic zone. These steps have further deepened FEZ integration into Klaipėda city and its infrastructure.
CityBee, a car and bike sharing scheme already popular in Vilnius and Kaunas, was launched in Klaipėda and the Lithuanian seaside in May 2017. The latest expansion to FEZ raises the number of Citybee bike stations in Klaipėda to 16. A total of 44 bicycles can be operated between these stations by Klaipėda residents and tourists.
Also, CityBee’s car sharing operating area has been extended into Klaipėda FEZ territory, thus allowing journeys to and from central Klaipėda, the coastal area, and also Vilnius and Kaunas. Around 30-40 Citybee cars are currently available in the Klaipėda region.
Eimantas Kiudulas, Manager of Klaipėda FEZ, says that CityBee bike and car sharing schemes have proven themselves of tremendous value for both residents and businesses of Vilnius and Klaipėda, and so Klaipėda FEZ wanted to bring this novelty closer to its community.
“I am certain that our investors and employees will be quick to embrace the benefits of new, faster, cheaper and environmentally friendly commuting and travelling options that CityBee has brought to our district,” E. Kiudulas said.
Klaipėda FEZ already had a strong network of cycling routes within its territory with further integration with Klaipėda city center foreseen in 2018-19 as a part of Tilžės street reconstruction.
CityBee also applauds its expansion into the free economic zone and suggests that a further growth of its seaside network is on the horizon.
“We see constant growth in Klaipėda and its region from day one of our operations here. We strive to be the foremost mobility solution for trips to work, shopping, to the sea or across the country. We believe Klaipėda FEZ is an innovative community that will be quick to benefit from better transport opportunities that Citybee brings,” said Lukas Yla, CEO of Citybee.
