Bike Citizens includes Frankfurt in the app and partners with the city to help on planning

Frankfurt is now available on the navigation app Bike Citizens, Frankfurt city this week announced.

The app Bike Citizens is available for Android and iOS. The app is free of charge.

Frankfurt city and Bike Citizens have a cooperation where the usage of the anonymous recording of bike usage, will enable the city to do a a better planning.

 “In our city of short distances, cycling is becoming more popular every year. Now we want to create the bicycle city of Frankfurt. We want to have the best possible planning basis for this. It helps us to know even more precisely the paths that the Frankfurters actually travel by bike. The use of the app can thus make a valuable contribution to making cycling planning in Frankfurt particularly citizen-friendly and needs-oriented. That’s why the city supports the ‘bikecitizens’ app and wants to encourage the cycling population to make use of this smart service,” said Klaus Oesterling, Verkehrsdezernent.

I do not have a bike, but I use Call a Bike almost every day. I pay 49 euros and I can use every time I want, for periods of 30 minutes. Will start to use this app and sharing here some insights.
