The company also said that if bicycling becomes more popular, then next year the time schedule for transporting bikes on local trains may be extended if regular passengers are not disturbed.The fine for parking a motorbike in an unauthorized zone is currently set at 1,500 rubles. The capital's transportation department said motorcycles and scooters fall into the category of motor vehicles and therefore must follow the parking rules set out for cars.
