Nova Gorica to launch bike-sharing network in 2020


The network planned by the Nova Gorica municipality and the Regional Development Agency of Northern Primorska will initially include 28 standard bikes and 13 e-bikes located at eight stations.

This is not the first attempt to bring bike sharing to Nova Gorica. Previous plans to establish a joint network with neighbouring Gorizia in Italy were abandoned after the selected Italian service provider failed to meet the requirements for the service's launch.

While the Go-kolo network will not be connected to the one in Gorizia, the plan is to expand it to the neighbouring Ĺ empeter-Vrtojba municipality and build additional stations.

The use of the network will be free of charge for a limited time period, chosen in agreement with the service provider. The price and terms of use will be determined in agreement with the chosen provider. The system will offer payment with online or mobile application or by payment cards.

The partners have released a public call for bids to find the service provider, which will be chosen in September. The deadline for the start of operations is March 2020.
