This program aims to increase the number of people walking along the town. Some maps, similar to underground maps, inform the visitant about the distance, in meters and minutes, that separates the main streets and squares, as well as the tourist attractions and the basic services (parking facilities, taxi ranks, bicycle rentals, health centres and so on).
The municipal service of bicycle rentals aims to encourage the use of bikes as an efficient and healthy means of transport to be used in the city, contributing to a more sustainable mobility. It complements public transport perfectly and aims to cover short distances within the town. This service has several parking racks where bicycles can be taken and left: O Cavadelo, Renfe railway estation, Plaza de la Libertad (Carril), Avenida de Cambados (As Pistas, near the sports centre) and Doña Concha Park (Vilaxoan). Rentals can be for a day, a week, a month or a year. This service is available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. The time of use is unlimited but subject to periods of two hours, after which the bicycle must be left, although it can be taken again afterwards.
This service aims to reduce the use of private vehicles and to encourage the use of public transport in the municipal area. The Vaibus! card is free and can be obtained on the bus itself or in Pereira headquearters, the transport company, (Grupo Abalo) as well as in the Municipal Tourist Office. It offers unlimited number of rides during 30 days, after charging the card with €20 on any municipal bus line.
