Use pedal power to get round Bergamo

LaBiGi Bergamo
The BiGi point outside the Turismo Bergamo office in
Piazzale degli Alpini, near the railway station.
Transport services in Bergamo have been boosted by a low cost, practical and pollution-free bike sharing service.
La BiGi is an innovative bicycle rental scheme available to anyone wanting a valid alternative to driving round the city in a car.
It is run by Atb, Bergamo’s bus company, to provide bikes for shoppers, workers, tourists and students.
And anyone arriving in the city by train, car or bus can also change to two wheels to get around.
It is free for the first 45 minutes, costs €1 from 45 minutes to two hours, €2 from two to three hours and €5 for longer than three hours.
Bikes can be picked up and returned at any of 15 distribution points throughout the city between 06:00 and 23:00 .
You will see the distinctive red bikes waiting in racks at: Piazza Marconi, Piazzale degli Alpini, Via Paleocapa, Piazza Cavour, Piazza Matteotti, Viale Vittorio Emanuele II, Via Sant’Orsola, Largo Rezzara, Via Coghetti, Largo Tironi, Via Don Bosco, Via A Maj, Piazza Sant’Anna, Piazzetta Santo Spirito and Piazzale Oberdan.

You can find out more at Atb's La BiGi page.
