"Batumi-Velo" is only for locals so far
Foreign tourists are not yet able to take advantage of the new tourist service in Adjara - "Batumi-Velo". According to "Business-Georgia" with reference to the Deputy Director of the Batumi travel agency Eku Chanishvili, the cause of this situation is that the Georgian banks have not yet implemented a system to use bank cards by foreign nationals. But the problem should already be settled by September, she said.
Chanishvili also explained that within the project 100 bicycles were already delivered to Batumi, but the demand is so great that it became necessary to print new cards.
Recall the supplier of "Batumi-Velo" is France. The project should promote a healthy lifestyle in the country, as well as respect for the environment.
Initially, in Batumi, only 10 terminals are operating and you can use the bike for 24 hours. Payment is made by a special card.
