The project would be implemented with the participation of one settlement in Hungary, Sátoraljaújhely, as well as two in Slovakia, Zemplín and Viničky. The Lead Partner of the project is Sátoraljaújhely. The Community Bicycle Transport System (eKKK system) to be created in the framework of the project is a new, community transport service which improves the connection between regional and microregional centres as well as the inner permeability of the border region. In the implemented eKKK system, bicycle rental stations will be established at eight strategic locations in Sátoraljaújhely, and one each in Zemplín (Zemplén) and Viničky (Szőlőske). The aim of the creation of the shared e-bicycle system is to offer an efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to travelling between the settlements, to widen the range of the currently available means of transportation, and to decrease transportation problems. As a result of the system, bicycle transport will be available to those travelling between the settlements as an alternative at all times. From a practical point of view, the eKKK system provides an excellent opportunity for the local populations, students studying in the town, those regularly commuting from nearby settlements, those travelling across the border, as well as tourists visiting the settlements and the tourist attractions to reach their destinations faster, easier and cheaper. The eKKK system is intended to connect settlements, countries, homes and workplaces, as well as attractions. It facilitates daily travel between the settlements on the two sides of the border, generates economic development, forms social relationships and makes staying in touch easier. The system is available publicly, can be extended into a network (without any limitation), and sets an example to other Hungarian and Slovak settlements in the region, as a self-service, environmentally friendly, and awareness-raising solution.
