Orange bikes in Rio de Janeiro

Bike Rio is a project created by Itaú bank, a private Brazilian Bank, in 2011. The idea is to promote health habits while helping the environment. There are around 260 bike stations and over 2600 bikes in the South Zone, North Zone, West Zone and in the center of Rio.

The bikes can be rented 24/7, but once you rent a bike, you can use it for 60 minutes. After returning the bike to the station, you must wait 15 minutes before taking another bike. Anyone can use it, and it’s really simple.
