The system of public bicycles will reduce traffic jams, improve public transport, and it will have a significant impact on the environment, but it will also encourage people on daily physical activity,” said Ahmed Cerimovic, director of the agency Supermarket.

In the next period, the holders of the project are planning to make specific requests to the mayors of Sarajevo municipalities, as well as other competent authorities for assigning of urban locations for Nextbike terminal, and offers for financial support for the implementation of the project, as announced from the agency Supermarket Ltd.
