Tender for New Bike Sharing System in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – The city of Copenhagen and the city of Frederiksberg, as well as the Public Transport Operators Metroselskabet and DSB S-tog have entered a collaboration on the development and establishment of a bike-sharing system, which in a first step covers the cities of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg. At a later stage, the system could be offered to other organisations such as other cities, public entities, private enterprises and similar.

The task of establishing, operating and maintaining the bike-sharing-system will be EU-tendered in December 2011. In the beginning of October 2011 a tender notice will be published and the prequalification will start.

In connection with the prequalification, an information meeting for potential bidders will be held October 4th 2011. Purpose is to inform about the practical matters regarding the tender.

The meeting will take place at 16.00-18.00CET at:
DSB Headquarters
Sølvgade 40B
1307 Copenhagen
Denmark

It is the vision to give citizens, customers of public transport, tourists and visitors in the two cities the possibility of using a public transport system from door to door and not only between stations.
This will be secured by connecting the existing public transportation system, which focuses on transportation of many people over long distances with high comfort and short travel times, with the high flexibility of a bike. This generates increased accessibility to business parks, residential-, shopping- and other areas of interest, which today are rarely serviced by public transport or where the existing network does not offer an attractive service.

For registering for the information meeting mail no later than 3rd October 12:00 to Kim Guldbrandsen: kgu@dsb.dk
