- following the testing of the Bratislava bikesharing Slovnaft BAjk, the company Slovnaft and the Bratislava – Capital City of Slovakia have requested time for its fine tuning in order to offer the public a user-friendly and comfortable service
- the service in Bratislava will gradually be launched during the summer months
BRATISLAVA, 28 June 2018 – The Bratislava and SLOVNAFT, a.s., have arranged the launch of the Bratislava bikesharing Slovnaft BAjk for the beginning of the summer holidays. Following internal service testing, the partners have requested time to fine tune the service in order to enhance the user experience.
Within the introduction of the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the project partners have also decided on additional safety measures within the system administration. Both partners at the same time work with new suggestions from cycling organisations and future users about the location of the docking stations. Thus, the map of the system already available will be supplemented to include new locations during the pilot scheme.
The Slovnaft BAjk service will be launched by the Bratislava in co-operation with Slovnaft during the summer months. Initially, it will be about testing the system in the streets of Bratislava with those selected users from Slovnaft, city council employees and selected members of the public who have become involved in a competition via www.slovnaftbajk.sk.
The Slovnaft BAjk service is part of new business activities within the MOL Group whose members include Slovnaft. Under the MOL Group´s strategy, the area of sharing economy should be one of the major roles by 2030. The MOL Group is already into its fourth year of support and cooperation in the Budapest bikesharing network under the brand-name MOL Bubi and also launched a carsharing scheme called MOL Limo in January 2018.
