On Saturday, November 5, HSH Prince Albert II attended the presentation of the new electric-bike station installed at the Palace Square.

Monaco’s environmentally friendly bike scheme, a joint initiative developed by the Government of Monaco and the Monaco Bus Company (CAM) launched in 2010, now has 82 bikes and 13 charging stations across the Principality, with three more stations to be opened by the end of the year.
