Milan's bike-sharing service "BikeMI" has added seven new stations for a total of 222 new stalls.

Mobility and environment councillor Pierfrancesco Maran, announcing the openings, said: "With these seven new stations, bike sharing has officially entered its second phase, extending now beyond the Area C [central limited traffic zone] and becoming even more a means of public transport for commuters who travel daily from home to work and prefer using a bike rather than a car."

The new stations are at Porta Genova (27 stalls), piazza Oberdan (36), viale Coni Zugna/via Foppa (36), largo V Alpini 6 (30), via Canova 19 (30), corso Sempione/via Melzi D'Eril (27) and via Melzi D'Eril/Cagnola (36 stalls).

Full details on how to subscribe to the service, available 365 days a year from 7.00 to midnight, are on the BikeMI website. The site includes a map showing how many bikes are available at each station, updated in real time.
