In Bern, there are many opportunities to share or rent a bike, whether it’s for a short ride through city neighborhoods or trips into the surrounding countryside. You can choose a normal bicycle, e-bike or mountain bike, or a road or cargo bike from the following suppliers, who are sure to have just what you’re looking for.
PubliBike owns the largest bike-sharing network in Switzerland and offers both bicycles and e-bikes. Bicycles can be accessed at permanent docking stations with an app or the SwissPass and then dropped off again at another one. The docks are easy to find with the app thanks to the integrated card. The bikes available from PubliBike are more suitable for short distances.
carvelo2go is the largest sharing platform for e-cargo bikes. These electric transporters, known in Switzerland as “Carvelos”, can be rented at affordable hourly rates using the app or website and then picked up from and later returned to a host (e.g. at a bakery). Carvelos can be used to transport up to 100 kilograms of cargo or two children, making them ideal for a family outing!
