In recognition of the great support we got, we created a visual overview of the last years records. It especially emphasizes the role played by the newly introduced registration via smartphone!

The CEO of Gewista, Franz Solta, is also delighted with the current figures in the 14th anniversary of Citybike Wien and highlights the successful collaboration with INFOSCREEN, where the users of Public Transport are informed in real time about available bicycles at the next Citybike Wien Station.
