From Saturday, 21 May, residents and visitors of Prague will be able to take advantage of a unique opportunity: to transport their bikes on city buses.
External bike racks will be trialled on bus N° 147, making public transport more accessible for bike riders and bike riding more accessible for public transport users.
Here some tips:
- Be prepared when the bus arrives at the bus stop. Remember to remove water bottles, bicycle pumps or other items before the bus arrives.
- You are responsible for loading and unloading your bicycle. For safety reasons, the driver cannot leave the bus to assist you.
- Load your bike as quickly as possible while other passengers are boarding. Be considerate of your fellow passengers, who may need to make a transfer down the line.
Prague Transport Company has been actively promoting a healthy lifestyle, trying to instill the love for bicycles to residents and tourists.
