The results of the competition in Klaipeda
Idea name: Problems for bicycles in the city Team captain Ieva Vasiliauskaitė This work raised some problems visible for common bicycle users in the city: obstacles on bicycle tracks, incorrect road sign markings, also some safety issues concerning sharing of joint pedestrian/ bike paths between commuters. One of the suggested ideas is already established – separated lines for bicycles were isolated on the road in the old town of Klaipėda (Tiltų st.), leaving the sidewalks only for pedestrians. For other mentioned infrastructure problems there is also some funding appointed in this year’s budget of Klaipėda municipality.
Idea name: Improving bicycle transport in Klaipeda city Team captain Bernardas Zakaras Main topic of this work was to implement some public transport means to transport bicycles through the city in case of emergency or just in need to reach some specific destinations without using the bicycle itself. The proposed means were buses or taxis. The result today is that after a request from a regional municipality representative and with cooperation with 1 PT carrier, 2 vehicles were embedded with bicycle mounts with a possibility to carry up to 3 full size bicycles. Those 2 vehicles were assigned to drive in the outskirts of the city where no bicycle tracks are established, so that people could avoid driving on the road in these areas.

Idea name: Youth lines Team Captain Jonas Viršilas Main idea of this work was to establish new Bus lines (youth line) throughout the city with interconnecting mini/midi buses between them. Keynote of this would be that every single spot in the city could be reached with no more than 2 bus transfers.
