Two lockable boxes have been installed at the Shopping Centre by Chodov Metro Station for short-term parking of bicycles. Each of them has space for four cycles.
They cost just 5CZK per hour and work on the principle of Bike and Ride, so local residents can get to the metro station on their bike, keep it in a safe place and continue on public transport. Each box is also equipped with a socket for charging electric bikes.
Parking is in high demand and cyclists will also have to compete with local mothers who come to the mall who they leave their prams in the boxes.
The first locked bicycle parking in Prague opened in September at the railway station in Klánovice district.
