The new bicycle lanes in Tirana are already seeing a massive usage by citizens, making the city Mayor, Erion Veliaj, say that if they continue with this pace, they will achieve the goal of making a modern Tirana.
There is also an initiative for promoting the bicycle culture to smaller children so that the future will see a better traffic and cleaner air.
The Municipality of Tirana has planned to improve the road infrastructure by paying special attention to bicycle lanes. The project foresees the construction of 10 kilometres of dedicated lanes.
This initiative of the municipality comes before the “bike-sharing|” project, which will increase the number of bicycles in the city for a lower price than urban transportation.
