Project “A pedalar”

The project “A pedalar” was launched in September 2015, during the Mobility Week at Técnico. This is an innovative project that aims to increase the number of people cycling to and from Alameda campus. This initiative was supported by Caixa Geral de Depósitos, which provided IST community several bicycles and locks, free of charge.
