The City of Luxembourg (Ville de Luxembourg - VdL) recently announced the expansion of the Vel'OH! bicycle network to three new municipalities: Leudelange, Mamer and Niederanven.
In its 2017 call for tenders for the establishment and operation of a self-service electric bicycle system, the City of Luxembourg had already provided for the possibility of an easy extension to peripheral municipalities. Leudelange, Mamer and Niederanven have therefore adopted the Vel'OH system! of the City of Luxembourg, thus joining the municipality of Bertrange which joined in 2018 as well as the municipalities of Hesperange and Strassen which had already introduced the first generation of Vel’OH! in their territory in 2011.
“The extension of the self-service bicycle network to three new municipalities is an important step for the interconnection in terms of soft mobility beyond the borders of the capital. Thanks to its 100% electrically assisted system, the Vel'OH! is accessible to a wider public and makes it possible to easily cover greater distances, which favours its implementation in neighbouring municipalities”, explained City of Luxembourg alderman Patrick Goldschmidt.
In total, the Vel'OH! network now counts 116 stations, including 88 in the territory of the City of Luxembourg and 28 in the outlying municipalities.
On the occasion of the extension of the Vel’OH! Network, the City of Luxembourg is offering interested parties the possibility of winning an annual long-term Vel'OH! subscription. The 200 winners will be determined by drawing lots from all those who register between 17 and 24 September 2021 on mobilite.vdl.lu.
