Make the most of Valenbisi, a dynamic and sustainable city transport

In 2010, the city of Valencia started a new era in urban mobility to create cleaner and sustainable transport. Valenbisi is a bicycle sharing system, with a wide network of bikes available throughout the city. Despite the apparent complexity of articulating such transport network, the proposal to create an eco-friendly system has so far been successful. The main purpose of Valenbisi is to cover daily routes within the city, without traffic congestion, pollution, and harming the environment.

Following the example of other major European cities including Brussels, Dublin, Gothenburg and Marseille, the City Council of Valencia realised that it could reduce pollution and road congestion by introducing bicycle transportation. To facilitate the task, the Valencian Council designed an ambitious program to install collection points and bicycle storage for major urban areas. Thus, busy avenues such as Blasco Ibáñez, Naranjos and Aragón started to get filled up with blue bicycles. At the same time, new bicycle lanes were also created in these streets.

Over the years, the network has been extended to cover almost all districts of the city, make it possible to comfortably travel from one end of Valencia to another and leave the bike at any station. If you want to use this system, it has two modes of registration in terms of where you stay in the city. For example, you can opt for a weekly ticket (short-term) or one year ticket (long-term), with the possibility of using bicycles as often as needed.

In both cases, you can cycle wherever you want without having to pay any additional fee for the first thirty minutes. After that, you can continue to use the bike as long as you pay for it or park the bike at a corresponding point and take another one (counting the thirty minutes thereafter). Registration on the platform can be done conveniently from the Internet by selecting the desired subscription type and even combining it with other modes of public transport.

Currently, there are about 300 Valenbisi bike stations throughout the city. In fact, it is almost impossible to walk the streets without coming across one of these stations. The reception, from what we've seen so far, has been very positive and, although young people are the biggest group that uses this service, it is increasingly common to see users of all ages. A model of sustainable travel that invites you to discover Valencia from a different perspective.
