Prague City Hall plans to launch a bike-sharing scheme in the capital, the internet news server Aktualne.cz reported on Friday. The system would offer around 1,000 bikes, which would be stationed at around 120 points around the city. The city would also provide regular services of the bikes and an on-line booking system. The costs are estimated at around 50 million crowns, the website reported. A company that would operate the system should be chosen by the end of the year. Currently, a bike sharing scheme is offered in Prague and several other cities in the Czech Republic by a non-profit organisation Rekola.
