The councilman of Mobility, Ernesto Gasco, did not want to move forward the details of elected model, which will be presented publicly next Friday, during the Week of the Mobility that will be celebrated between 16 and on September 22 under the motto Be quiet for all.
The Town hall takes several years studying the possibility of implanting a system of loan of bicycles, in order to encourage the use of these vehicles. Nevertheless, for the time being, only the private initiative - hotels and parking lots - they have put into practice the transfer of these vehicles to move for the city.
The principal acts of the Week of the Mobility will develop between the 19th and 21st, dates in which the Boulevard will receive an exhibition of bikes. The sample, opened from 11.00 until 20.00 hours, will exhibit from the models most used up to the last tendencies in vehicles of two wheels. Also, the citizens will be able to approach some of the systems of loan used in other cities, opportunity that will make the most of the Mobility department to make public the model chosen for the implantation of this system in the capital of Guipúzcoa.
In the same place the citizens will have the possibility of registering his bicycles at a limited price. If the shops that collaborate with the Town hall receive 19 euros for implanting a burglar-proof system linked to the municipal record, who realize the marking during these days they will have to pay twelve euros.
The bicycles record was started in March and, since then, more than 650 persons have inscribed his vehicles. "In Barcelona they take two years and only they have 500 registered bicycles", indicated Gasco. As he said, the record has been useful already to identify several removed bicycles. "There have happened persons' cases that have gone to the municipal deposit to claim like his some bicycle requisitioned by the Municipal Guard and, thanks to the record, it has been proved that it was not like that and one has been sick to his proprietor", he declared.
Also, and like innovation, the tent of the Boulevard will receive a workshop of ITV in which the citizens will be able to realize small repairs in his bicycles. This service will be free from 16.30 until 19.30 hours.
WITHOUT SPANISH PARLIAMENT OF TRAFFIC Otherwise, the Week of the Mobility will support a scheme similar to those of previous years. Once again, traffic courts will not be realized, since, in opinion of Gasco, "the attitudes voluntaristas of one day do not help to improve the environment".
What yes will do the Town hall is to inaugurate two new bidegorris: the one that connects the rails bike of the walks of Biscay and Errondo and that of the Old roadway of Ategorrieta.
Also there will be activities for children and major.
