Glyfada Bike Sharing Takes Off
There's something new in the southern Athenian suburb of Athens - Glyfada is now home to i-bike - an excellent bike sharing system available to locals and visitors.

There are two i-bike stations at Glyfada, one at the beach by Vergoti Square and one at the old City Hall. Cyclers can choose from 20 available bicycles for transportation purposes, strolling or just for fun.

Users must be over 18 and can rent a bike for as long as they wish with the use of a credit card or via cell phone, returning it to any of the installed stations across town. Regular users, applicable only to Glyfada residents, can sign up for the system and receive a special e-card which provides 24-hour access. Cards are available from Glyfada City Hall.

Bike sharing, first implemented in European cities in 1965, gives people the chance to borrow a bike from one point and return it to another point in the city.
