Along with trams and buses, cycling is one of the most popular and fastest means of transport in the city. Free bicycle parking spaces can be found virtually everywhere. Bicycle stations, such as that at the train station, offer additional parking facilities (subject to a fee) and repair services. Another similar bicycle station with up to 1,000 free parking spaces is available for students and employees at the university’s von Roll campus on Fabrikstrasse.
The city of Berne promotes sustainable transport and encourages more people to cycle with concrete measures such as the bike sharing programme ‘Publibike’.
Bicycles can be found for reasonable prices on bicycle fairs in spring and autumn.
