The Croatian city of Split announced that it is the latest destination in Croatia  offering the park and ride bike sharing system. “Nextbike” already offers 20 electric and 30 classic bikes at four locations in the Dalmatian city of Split. They can be found on the Riva waterfront in front of St. Frane church, at Stari Plac, Joker Shopping Center, and at the Sukoisana bus station. Four additional stations will be available at Znjan plateau, at Split 3 parking on the intersection of B. Busic and Poljicka street, at the Student Centre in Spinut and at Kampus. 

The aim of the public bike sharing system is to provide a service to tourists and locals offering economic and environmental benefits by having more people use bikes in the city. The new mobility options aims to also encourage the use of bicycles and make this a worthwhile alternative to cars. Split is the 20th city in Croatia to introduce the “Nextbike” network. In Croatia there are around 800 public bikes and until now there have been no reports of theft or damage, thanks largely to users being registered and the bikes being chipped.
