Want to help reduce traffic and pollution whilst enjoying exercise, then try  out Milan’s new public bike sharing service, BikeMi.

Visitors and Tourists alike can choose a daily or weekly pass and register online by using a credit card. Once you have your code and password, you have  access to over 70 stations mostly around the city centre where all you have to do is follow the simple instructions on display. Take your bike, ride it for less than two consecutive hours and leave the bike at any other BikeMi station.

The first 30 minutes are free. After the first 30  minutes it costs € 0.50 for every subsequent half hour or fraction of a half hour for a maximum of two hours. Available 365 days a year from 7:00 to 23:00  (until 02:00 in during the summer). The service is not available to under 16’s.
