BikeMi (move around by bike)
BikeMi is the Bike Sharing service of the city of Milan. Created to promote the mobility of citizens, BikeMi is not a simple bike rental service, but a real public transport system to be used for short trips (up to 2 hours) along with traditional ATM transport.

Those who subscribe only have to think about taking the bike, getting to their destination and returning it to the nearest station.

To buy :
Choose one of the subscriptions at your disposal (annual, weekly or daily) and buy it on App, web site, ATM or ATM Infoline Point. If you purchase an annual subscription BikeMi will send the card within 15 days otherwise you will be sent an email or text message with user code and password to access the service directly.
