Green vehicle for CAREC
Last September, Almaty introduced a bike rental system entitled Almaty Bike, which also operates in Astana and Shymkent. The official start of the project was given by the city mayor, Bauyrzhan Baibek. In total, no less than 50 stations have already been installed in the central streets of this city.
CAREC could not stay aside of such "green" initiative and installed a bicycle station on own means for the employees on the territory of headquarters. Now they have the opportunity to use the ‘clean’ transport on the way to work and back.
Five lucky winners got a chance to use bicycles for the first month.
