VeloCittà is a project using segmentation techniques and adoption of the most effective operational solutions to improve usage of Bicycle Share Systems

The ultimate benefit of VeloCittà is that it provides inspiration and builds capacity in local authorities and BSS stakeholders engaged with the design and implementation of effective and resource-efficient solutions able to boost the uptake of BSS’s, setting in motion a beneficial snowball effect on urban cycling as a whole. The project will see its results continued in the ‘Cycling Workspace’ long after the project has finished.

8 of the World’s Best Bike Sharing Programs

As cycling becomes more and more welcomed as a dominant method of inner-city travel in the first world, we’re going to see more and more of these bike shares, as well as seeing the existing ones expand (hopefully they’ll be expanding my local bike share—there never seems to be a bike available when I need it). These days, everyone knows Europe is basically the king when it comes to cycling infrastructure, so logically one would assume all the best bike share programs must also be in Europe. While many of them are, the rest of the world has also been stepping their cycling game up in recent decades. Below you’ll find a list of the world’s eight best bike share programs by city. If you’re expecting Europe to dominate this list, then #1 might come as a shock to you.

How to turn cafes into rental points of a citywide bike sharing; in and outside Russia

We developed a service, which makes it possible to connect city cafes into a network of bike sharing points. Users can get a bike in seconds and return it in any cafe connected to Cafebike, the payment will be charged automatically upon finishing the ride. Cafebike already works in St.Petersburg and is ready for launch in other cities globally. Cafebike is simple Cafebike doesn’t require automated stations or locks. Ramp up costs are less than $200–300 and annual operation costs $30–50 on a per bike basis. It’s 10–30 times less than the costs of launching bike sharing with any other technology. Low costs make it attractive option for individuals, communities or businesses considering starting up a public bike sharing in their city as well as for traditional bicycle rental business willing to expand and increase profitability. Cafebike is now looking for expansion via setting partnerships with city governments or bicycle businesses in most cities or launching own operations in selected cities. A partner gets a step-by-step plan, materials and support required for successful launch and operation. App localization challenges are already solved — payments processing system can bill users in all currencies and any language can be added in days. Contact us at contact@cafebike.org to learn how to launch bike sharing in your city. Read more here.
