BicipúbliCartago

There was a widespread press echo of BicipúbliCartago; the majority of articles emphasize the importance of the project to help solving the congestion and environmental pollution problematics in Costa Rica’s cities, especially within its Greater Metropolitan Area. Also, the positive health aspects that the Sustainable Mobility campaign focuses on are being emphasized. Some of the articles further explain the detailed functioning of the bicycle rental system in Cartago and call for other municipalities to repeat the joined efforts in this pioneer project made by the Municipality of Cartago, the Dutch Embassy, and A Foundation. For example, see La Nacion, Today Costa Rica, the Central America LIVE! blog, BS Noticias or CRHOY with their foto of the day. Furthermore, the project was widely spread and commented on in social media sites with its official Facebook page instantly rising to more than 5000 likes.
