Getting about by bicycle and public transport


The ideal complement to public transport for the first and final kilometre

Bike-sharing services are taking Switzerland's cities by storm. Bike-sharing is the ideal complement to public transport and closes the final gaps in the mobility chain. It provides you with a relaxed and comfortable ride from the railway station directly to your destination. It’s flexible, saves you having to find a parking space, and – if you are hiring an e-bike – requires minimal effort. You will also be helping to reduce traffic in inner-city areas.

Bike-sharing providers Bikes & E-Bikes

There are several bike-sharing systems operating in Switzerland, five of these in the BLS region:
