O’Bike Project, Mutrah Corniche

oBike  Saw some posters and then the actual bike station for “O’Bike Project” while in Muttrah this morning.  This a pretty cool project and initiative by Muscat Municipality!  🙂

The posters along Al Bahri Street read, “Take a Breath! Ride for Free on Mutrah Corniche.  Ride for free from February 16th to May 16th 2013, 7 days a week from 4 to 8 pm.”  

From the O’Bike facebook page: “O’Bike is a self-service bicycle system inititiated by Muscat Municipality, sponsored by Omantel, and operated by JCDecaux Oman Branch“.426375_452546868151350_803608024_n  Here’s one pic from O’Bike’s facebook album titled “First O’Bike Rider“.oBikeRouteMap  The O’Bike Route map from the O’Bike website.

How it Works:  “Every day from 4 pm to 8 pm, walk to the O’Bike station on Mutrah Corniche, share your ID card with the operator, take a bike and a helmet, and enjoy a free ride for up to 30 minutes!  All are welcome to take part in this first-ever self-service bicycle system in Oman for a three-month period (until May 16th, 2013).”bike station from a distance  A horrible pic of the O’Bike station taken from across the street this afternoon.  Here’s a much better pic of the bikes and station from Omantel’s facebook page:bike pic from omanteltour liners  3 Cruise ships at Muscat Port.  It was a busy and beautiful day to be down at Muttrah today!
