On Monday  the new city bikes were made available to the residents of the capital.

The Commissioner for the Environment and Transport, Lan Marie Nguyen Berg (MDG), was present at the launch of the new bikes and was the first to try them out.
Previously, the  only racks where you could find city bikes were within Ring 2, but now about a third of the racks are placed between Ring 2 and Ring 3.
During 2016,  nearly 200 new racks have been built, with 3,000 bikes at the disposal of residents of and visitors to Oslo.
A city bike card for the whole of 2016 will cost 299 NOK, which is 200 kroner more than last year
