Europe[edit]

Advertising company JCDecaux launched its "Cyclocity" programs initially in Vienna,[215] Austria in 2003 and in Lyon, France in 2005. The company also started programs in other cities in Europe such as Paris, Córdoba, and Kazan, as well as cities outside of Europe, such as Brisbane, Australia. Payment for using the bikes is done with smart cards.

Competitor Clear Channel, then operating as Adshel, opened the first example of this in Rennes in 1997, and has several other sites including Oslo, Stockholm, Sandnes and Trondheim, most generally similar to that offered by their competitor.

A different financial model called bicing is used in Barcelona, which is paid for by car owners parking on public streets and not by advertising – which is contracted to JCDecaux in some places.[216]

Austria[edit]

In 2001, the city of Vienna implemented a first version of a bike sharing system following the example of Copenhagen. Unfortunately, Viennabike failed and its shortcomings were fixed in the second implementation called Citybike Wien, which started 2003. It is operated by Gewista and comprises 1500 bikes distributed to 121 stations with 3097 slots.[217] In 2015, more than 1 million trips and more than 100,000 new registrations were recorded. There is no fee for the first rental hour, additional hours are charged starting with €1.[218]

Belgium[edit]

Line of bikes at a Villo! station

The Villo! system was launched in Brussels in 2009, and is operated by JCDecaux. It's the company's second biggest bicycle rental system after Paris in terms of quantity.[clarification needed] At the beginning of April 2015, it had 4115 bikes across 346 stations.[219]

In Antwerp, a bike system called Velo went public in 2011. It is operated by Clear Channel and registered 2558657 journeys in 2013.[220]

Bulgaria[edit]

Burgas is the first Bulgarian city to introduce a public rent-a-bike system. The scheme is called VeloBurgas and has 10 access points with 120 bikes in operation. The rent-a-bike system works with cards, SMS, and POS. Prices range from 0.50 to 1 lev per hour.[221]

Cyprus[edit]

Public bicycles in Nicosia, Cyprus

Bike in Action operates in the greater Nicosia area, similar to programmes employed in various cities of Cyprus. Bicycles can be found at stations in all participating municipalities (Agios Dometios, Aglandjia, Dali, Engomi, Latsia, Pallouriotissa, Strovolos) and returned after their use at any station. Bike in Action includes more than 310 bikes distributed in 27 full automated Smoove stations, which cover the wide Nicosia area. All the rental stations are connected with the banking system and access to the bikes can be obtained with the use of a credit card.[222]

Czech Republic[edit]

Rekola bikes in Prague, Czech Republic

As of 2018, the Rekola, a local bicycle-sharing system with more than 1000 bikes deployed was operating in eight cities in the country (Prague, Brno, Ostrava, České Budějovice, Liberec, Frýdek-Místek, Teplice and Olomouc).

The other providers in the country include HomePort, operating in Prague and Kladno,[223][224] Velonet in Prague 4 and Brno.[225] Also in 2017 the Chinese provider Ofo started with pilot operations in Prague 7. [226][227]

Denmark[edit]

Following earlier bike-sharing systems, Denmark introduced the first next generation bike-sharing system in 1991 in Farsø.[228] This small-scale scheme paved the way for the Copenhagen's ByCyklen programme, which was introduced in 1995 and was the first large-scale urban bike-sharing programme to feature specially designed bicycles with parts which could not be used on other bikes. Riders paid a refundable deposit at one of 110 special locking bike stands, and the riders then had unlimited use of the bike within a specified 'city bike zone'.[citation needed] The fine for not returning a bicycle or leaving the bike-sharing zone was strictly enforced by the police. The founders hoped to completely finance the programme by selling advertising space on the bicycles. This funding source quickly proved to be insufficient, and the city of Copenhagen took over the administration of the programme, funding most of the programme costs through appropriations from city revenues. Since it was free to the user, there is no return on the capital invested by the municipality, and a considerable amount of public funds was constantly used to keep the system in service. In 2013 a new version was expected to be introduced but the municipality of Copenhagen temporarily withdrew its support and there were no free bicycles for most of 2013.[229][230][231] Copenhagen municipality changed its mind and a new version was introduced in late 2013.[232]

Copenhagen was among the first cities in the world to have a free bike scheme called City Bikes,[233] which was paid by advertising on the bikes.

In late 2013, Copenhagen started a new program with electric bikes. The first phase of this program, with 1860 bikes and 105 docking stations, is to be completed in early 2016.[234]

Finland[edit]

Old defunct (2000 - 2010) Helsinki city bikes

City Bikes scheme in Helsinki launched in 2016, run by Helsinki City Transport (HKL), in collaboration with Moventia and Smoove. In the summer of 2017, City Bikes had 1500 bikes in 150 locations.[235][236][237]

France[edit]

Velib' bicycle station in Paris

In 1974, the French city of La Rochelle launched a free bike-sharing programme, Vélos Jaunes (Yellow Bikes), featuring unisex bicycles which were free to take and use. In terms of public usage and acceptance, it is regarded today as one of the first truly successful bike-sharing programmes. The programme continues today, albeit in modified form (rental charges apply after the first two hours, and personal identification is required for all bike rentals).

The Vélib' in Paris is the largest system outside China[citation needed]

French cities offering a bicycle sharing system include Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nice, Toulouse, Rennes, Rouen, La Rochelle, Orléans, Montpellier, Nantes, Lille, Dunkirk, Strasbourg, Clermont-Ferrand, Avignon, Saint-Étienne, Chalon sur Saône, Belfort, Lorient, Annemasse, Valence, and Aix-en-Provence.

The launch of Velo'v in Lyon, France in 2005 was an effort to improve on the disappointing performance of the traditional municipal public bike-sharing model. In an attempt to improve upon the results of the discontinued Bikeabout program at the University of Portsmouth, Velo'v utilised "smart" technology to reduce theft, user damage, and vandalism. Considered to be a city less than friendly to cyclists prior to 2005, the Velo'v programme is credited with stimulating an increase of 500% in bicycle trips within the city, a quarter of which used the bike sharing system.[238][239]

A resurgence in bike sharing programmes is attributed by many to the launching in 2007 of Paris's Vélib', a network of 18,000 specially designed bicycles distributed among 1,230 stations throughout Paris. Vélib', inspired by Lyon's seminal Vélo'v project, is now considered the second largest bike-sharing system of its kind in the world. 80 percent of Vélib's original 20,600 bicycles have been destroyed or stolen.[240] Some Vélib' cycles have been found in Eastern Europe and North Africa, while others have been dumped in the Seine River, hung from lampposts, or abandoned on the roadside in various states of disrepair, forcing the City of Paris to reimburse the programme operator an estimated $2 million per year for excess costs under its contractual agreement.[241]

Germany[edit]

Germany has bike-sharing programmes in many cities, including Aachen, Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg (StadtRAD Hamburg), Karlsruhe, Kassel (Konrad), Mainz (MVGmeinRad), Munich and Stuttgart. The station-based system Metropolradruhr is located in the Ruhr Area. Bike-sharing stations are also located in over 50 ICE railway stations.[242][243]

Greece[edit]

In November 2010, Corfu launched EasyBike, which includes one hundred bicycles that are distributed in eight rental stations throughout the town. The method of operation is similar to other such systems in Europe. Residents can obtain a special electronic subscriber card from the Municipality, which gives them access to bicycles and occasional users can use their credit card to rent a bicycle.[82] The system also gives users the ability to obtain a code and gain access to bicycles through an IVR automated system by using their credit card. EasyBike bike sharing system is developed by Brainbox under a Smoove license, which is the first Greek company to implement a bike sharing project in Greece.[244]

There are also other programmes similar to bicycle sharing systems, which are not automated. The first, running from early 2010, is in the northern suburb of Nea Erithréa, in Attica, while the second is that of the Municipality of Nafpaktos, which has been in operation since mid June 2010. In these programmes, the residents rent the bike directly from the municipality. In the programme implemented in Nea Erithréa, bicycles are rented for one week to six months, on condition that the user must submit to the municipality 75 euros as a guarantee. In Nafpaktos, bicycles are rented for up to two months for free.[245] In 2011, the municipality of Heraklion in Crete purchased 100 bicycles from the bike-sharing company Brainbox, the developer of EasyBike[246] system while free distribution of bicycles from the municipality had already started from April 2010.[247]

In May 2012, a non-automated system was introduced at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in Salonica, Northern Greece. It presents 60 public bikes available for the University community. The system has no electronic rental stations and the delivery and return of the bikes is made by students working part-time on the project.[248]

Hungary[edit]

Esztergom[edit]

The EBI in Esztergom, Hungary

The first public bicycle sharing service in Hungary was implemented in Esztergom on 20 September 2013. The Esztergom Bicycle or EBI was developed by Neuzer, a local bicycle manufacturing company.[249]

Szeged[edit]

The country's second bike sharing system in Szeged is CityBike Szeged. It has been in operation since 1 October 2013.[250][251]

Győr[edit]

GyőrBike opened on 7 September 2015 in Győr with 23 stations and 180 bicycles.[252]

Kaposvár[edit]

The Kaposvári Tekergő opened on 27 October 2015 in Kaposvár with 4 docking stations, 26 e-bikes and 6 e-rollers.[95]

Budapest[edit]

Budapest has the largest bicycle sharing system in Hungary. Operated jointly by BKK and MOL, the BuBi system was launched in September 2014[253] and has over 1500 bicycles and 120 docking stations as of November 2018.[254]

Ireland[edit]

In September 2009, Dublin launched a bike-share scheme known as dublinbikes operated by JCDecaux. With an initial 450 bicycles, the plan reached 1 million uses in less than a year.[255] As of June 2013, the scheme has had fewer than 12 bikes stolen or damaged.[256]

Italy[edit]

BikeMi, Milan, Italy

Milan has the largest bike sharing system in Italy, BikeMi, which was launched on 8 December 2008. It is contracted to and operated by Clear Channel on the basis of its SmartBike system.[257] The scheme encompasses 4,650 bicycles, which includes 1,000 electric bicycles and bikes for children.[258] and 280 stations.[259] Another large system exists in Turin. Since 2017, Mobike and OFO dockless systems also operate in Milan and Florence.[260] Several other cities, especially in the north, have smaller bike sharing systems.[261]

Netherlands[edit]

In 1965, the group Provo painted fifty bicycles white and scattered them unlocked in downtown Amsterdam for everyone to use freely.[4] The bicycles were both taken by people, and impounded by the authorities, as a city ordinance forbade leaving unlocked bikes in public places.[262][263]

In September 1997, a pilot project for a public share system, based on the UK's Grippa racks was established in Rotterdam, for use by commuters, but it was terminated the following year due to poor functionality of the electronic bike racks.[264]

The Netherlands: OV-fiets

The Netherlands has a single nationwide bike sharing program, called "OV-fiets", which means 'public transport bike'.[265] The system has 8500 bikes in 252 locations, mainly train stations, all over the country. Membership is required (annual fee €0.01, €3.85 per rental day) and can be combined with an OV-chipkaart. The program, which started on a small scale in 2003, has enjoyed a steadily increasing popularity with over 1.53 million rides registered in 2014. The nature of the Dutch bike sharing program differs from that of programs in other countries partly because the already high bike ownership of the population. Its interconnection with the public transport network allows it to fill the need of people who also want to continue traveling by bike from the station of their destination.[266]

Norway[edit]

The first Norwegian bicycle sharing system was introduced in Sandnes[267] in 1996.[268] It consisted of 225 green DBS bikes that were free to use in the fashion of a 1st generation bicycle sharing system. The Sandnes system was converted to a 3rd generation system in 2002.[269] In 1998, Trondheim introduced a 2nd generation system with 200 bicycles modeled after that of Copenhagen's. The Trondheim system was converted into a 3rd generation system in 2005. The following cities are known to have city bike arrangements. Some are prepaid automatic (example Oslo), some are manual (like in Tønsberg). In 2001, Drammen introduced a 3rd generation system together with the Clear Channel.[268]

Poland[edit]

The first bike-sharing program was launched in Kraków (Cracow) on 16 September 2008. As of 2016, 12 cities and towns in Poland have bike-sharing programs, most of them operated by nextbike.[271]

Portugal[edit]

Portugal has 13 bike-sharing programs functioning year-round as of October 2016, namely in the cities of Águeda (1 station/ 10 pedelecs), Anadia (10 stations), Aveiro (33 stations/350 bicycles), Cascais (October 2017: 19 stations inaugurated; 120 stations and 1200 bicycles by December, 2017), Lisbon (October, 2017: 10 stations inaugurated/100 bicycles; 140 stations and 1410 bicycles by December, 2017 of which 920 will be pedelecs), Oliveira de Azemeis (3 stations/20 pedelecs), Ovar (12 stations/130 bicycles), Paredes (5 stations/80 bicycles), Santarém (4 stations/40 bicycles), Serpa (2 stations/30 bicycles), Torres Vedras (11 stations/260 bicycles), Vilamoura (32 stations/200 bicycles), and Vila do Conde (12 stations/60 bicycles).

Romania[edit]

Timișoara is the first Romanian city to introduce a public rent-a-bike system. The scheme is called VeloTM and has 25 stations and 300 bikes. The rent-a-bike system works with the RATT card. Renting a bike is free however, the card costs.[272]

Russian Federation[edit]

VeloBike bicycles in Moscow

Automated public bicycle sharing services in Russia operate in Moscow, Sankt-Petersburg, Kazan and Almetyevsk (Republic of Tatarstan).

The system in Moscow is steadily expanding each year[273] while the systems in Sankt-Petersburg and Kazan are struggling to survive.[274][275]

The system in Almetyevsk is dockless with about 300 pre-marked parking lots across the town where the bicycles must be left after use.[126]

A couple of smaller-scale dockless systems are deployed in Adlersky City District in Sochi.[276][277]

Moscow

The Velobike system was opened in 2013. In 2015 it was fully replaced by the Smoove-based solution using B’TWIN bicycles.[278][279] In 2018 there were 430 parking stations in the system with 4300 bicycles. There were 424 736 users registered and 4.25 million journeys were performed in this season.[273]

Slovakia[edit]

In 2001, the not-for-profit organization BiCyBa released White Bicycles into public use in Bratislava, Slovakia. During the next three months all the bikes were stolen or destroyed, and the project was cancelled.[280][281] In 2013, a new community-run bike-sharing program in Bratislava called White Bikes commenced service with about 100 bikes (donated by local Rotary Club[282]) and over 60 stations (as of December 2017).[283] It is built on the Open Source Bike Share System[284] based on an SMS and a web app. It was started in 2013 by BikeKitchen initiative and cycling advocacy NGO Cyklokoalicia. There is no fee to use bikes, membership is granted after initial personal introduction and training. Bikes are available all year long.

Official Bratislava city bike sharing Slovnaft Bajk was launched on September 7, 2018[285] in cooperation with Slovnaft company. It offered only under 100 bicycles initially at around 80 stations.[286] Number of bicycles increased to around 190 later, but users complained about the UX and broken bicycles / rental process. Estimated 23%[287] of bicycles were not working or rendered inaccessible for rental.

The first commercial bike sharing in Slovakia was launched in 2016 in the city of Prievidza. Zelený bicykel (translates as Green bicycle) has 19 stations and is expected to add 10 more in 2018.[288] Bikes are not available during winter season.[289]

Public transportation company Arriva launched a bike sharing in Nitra in 2017. It is a complementary service for its bus service. It only features 7 docking stations, the price is €25 per year, €3 per day or €0.50 per hour.[290][291] Bikes are not available during winter season.

Spain[edit]

Bicing in Barcelona

The Ayuntamiento de Burgos[292] runs a bike-sharing program in BiciBur,[293] with 23 locations, most with positions for ten bikes. Membership is €15 per year.[293]

Sweden[edit]

The Stockholm City Bikes system has more than 80 stands and 1,000 bikes, functioning from April to October.[294]

The bike sharing system in Gothenburg, known as Styr & ställ, was launched in August 2010. The system has 60 stations and 1,000 bikes.[295]

Switzerland[edit]

A station in Lausanne (Switzerland).

Switzerland possesses several bicycle sharing systems including Publibike, Smide, and oBike which was launched in Zurich on 5 July 2017.[296] The Publibike network consists of one hundred stations throughout the country.[297] It includes nine stations on the Lausanne campus.[298] oBike is said to have deployed 350 bikes in the city of Zurich with bike hire being CHF 1.50 for 30 minutes, with a CHF 129 deposit being required.[299] The city of Zürich also has a free bike-rental program, "Züri rollt", with several pick-up and drop-off locations.[300]

United Kingdom[edit]

England[edit]

In 1993, a Green Bike Scheme bike sharing programme was initiated in Cambridge, United Kingdom, using a fleet of some 300 bicycles. The overwhelming majority of the fleet were stolen or missing within a year of the programme's introduction, and the Green Bike Scheme was abandoned.[301][302][303]

In an attempt to overcome losses from theft, the next innovation adopted by bike sharing programmes was the use of so-called 'smart technology'. One of the first 'smart bike' programmes was the Grippa™ bike storage rack system used in Portsmouth's Bikeabout scheme.[304][305][264] The Bikeabout scheme was launched in October 1995 by the University of Portsmouth, UK as part of its Green Transport Plan in an effort to cut car travel by staff and students between campus sites.[305] Funded in part by the EU's ENTRANCE[306] programme, the Bikeabout scheme was a "smart card" fully automated system.[305][264][307] For a small fee, users were issued 'smart cards' with magnetic stripes to be swiped through an electronic card reader at a covered 'bike store' kiosk, unlocking the bike from its storage rack.[305] CCTV camera surveillance was installed at all bike stations in an effort to limit vandalism.[305] Upon arriving at the destination station, the smart card was used to open a cycle rack and record the bike's safe return.[305] A charge was automatically registered on the user's card if the bike was returned with damage or if the time exceeded the three-hour maximum.[305] Implemented with an original budget of approximately £200,000, the Portsmouth Bikeabout scheme was never very successful in terms of rider usage,[a] in part due to the limited number of bike kiosks and hours of operation.[305][307] Seasonal weather restrictions and concerns over unjustified charges for bike damage also imposed barriers to usage.[305] The Bikeabout program was discontinued by the University in 1998 in favour of expanded minibus service; the total costs of the Bikeabout programme were never disclosed.[308][309] Following the discontinuation of the University of Portsmouth's Bikeabout programme in 1998[310] (it had been launched in 1996),[311][312] the introduction of new bicycle share systems proceeded more slowly in the United Kingdom than in the rest of Europe.

With initial sponsorship from Barclays and later Santander, Transport for London launched a cycle hire scheme in London, where hire under 30 minutes is free from special bicycle stands across the city, after a daily, monthly or annual charge has been paid.[313]

Barclays Cycle Hire, London, UK started in 2010

Outside of London, the largest is the hire-a-bike operation in Blackpool, operated by Hourbike,[314] with 60 stations and 500 bikes in the scheme. This scheme uses both RFID membership cards and instant point-of-sale memberships to cater for both residential users and the very many visitors that go to the resort every year. Hourbike also has schemes in Lincoln, Reading, Liverpool, Nottingham and Southport in England as well as Dumfries, Scotland.[315]

In 2017, ofo, a Beijing-based bike share company, announced plans to provide shared bike services to several British cities. In 2018, the company withdrew service to several British towns and reduced service area coverage to others as part of a global restructuring plan.[316]

In May 2017, Bristol became the first European city to have a hire-a-bike system operated by YoBike.[317][318]

Some bike-sharing schemes use mobile phone apps to reserve or sign out bikes. In the UK, OYBike delivered small-scale operations at 2 universities, 3 business parks, 3 London boroughs, and a private hotel chain in London until 2011. Like Munich's Call-a-Bike, OYBike used mobile phone technology to log use and charge for hires and can set up hire points in as little as 10 minutes.[319]

Brompton Bike Hire has 40 docks across 25 major locations in the UK, starting at £2.50 for 24 hours and is using the same hardware as BIXI Montréal, members can rent a folding Brompton bike. The locations of the docks include London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Reading, Southampton and Oxford.[320]

in 2007,[321] (another source gives early 2008) London mayor Ken Livingstone promised that an extensive bicycle sharing system modelled on the Paris Vélib' system would be introduced in London during his final term in office.[322] The scheme was not completed until Boris Johnson was in office, and consequently became known informally as "Boris Bikes".[323]

In 2018 the Singaporean-based company oBike launched in London, with 400 dockless bikes and is anticipated to soon spread to other cities in the UK.[324][325] In the UK, oBike's bike hire is 50p for 30 minutes, with a £49 deposit being required.[324][326]

Northern Ireland[edit]

Belfast launched a public bike hire scheme on 27 April 2015. The scheme was sponsored by Coca-Cola HBC Northern Ireland and is called Coca-Cola Zero Belfast Bikes. The Department for Regional Development (DRD) provided initial capital funding for the scheme as part of their Active Travel Demonstration Projects budget. NSL is looking after the daily operation of the scheme, while Nextbike is responsible for the bikes.[327] There are 33 docking stations with options for expansion depending on securing additional resources and council approval.[328][329]

Scotland[edit]

Recent expansions to cities in Scotland piggy-backing on the Commonwealth Games 2014 in Glasgow included Glasgow and Stirling.[330][331][332] Stirling's scheme was named "Pedalforth" following a competition in the community and comprises 100 bikes and 11 stations. Glasgow was provided with 400 bikes across 31 stations in 2014.[333] A system operated by JCDecaux is proposed for Edinburgh.[334]

Wales[edit]

Nextbike started a public bike hire scheme operating in Cardiff on 26 March 2018, with five docking stations and 50 bicycles.[335] The original plan had been to have the public bike hire scheme operating in Cardiff by Autumn 2017.[336] The plan is still to reach 500 cycles over 50 docking stations in the city.[335] It came 6 years after OYBike ended a smaller scheme (with 10 stations), following the council's withdrawal of funding in 2011.[336]

North America[edit]

Canada[edit]

Montréal, QC[edit]

BIXI Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The first widely deployed bicycle sharing system was BIXI Montréal. BIXI Montréal launched in 2009.[337] It has since expanded to 6200 bicycles at 540 stations,[338] making it by far the largest bicycle sharing system in Canada. Although initial program costs were $15 million for planning and implementation of the Bixi project, subsequent additional costs incurred in expanding the program have driven costs upwards of $23 million.[339][340][341] Started in May 2009, it has expanded to over 5000 bicycles at 450 stations.[342] The system was developed by PBSC Urban Solutions along with a consortium of vendors. The BIXI technology was then used in numerous bike sharing systems in North America, Europe and Australia. The Montreal system was ranked by Time Magazine as the 19th best invention of 2008.[343]

Hamilton, ON[edit]

Sobi Hamilton launched in March 2015 with 750 bicycles at over 100 stations.[344]

Ottawa, ON[edit]

The Bixi system was implemented in June 2009 in Ottawa/Gatineau as Capital Bixi. Capital Bixi launched in 2009 as a pilot program with 100 bicycles and 10 stations. In 2012, it was expanded to 250 bicycles and 25 stations. Its owner, the NCC, sold it to US-based CycleHop in April 2014 when its operator, Montreal-based Public Bike System Company, filed for bankruptcy protection in January 2014.[345][346] CycleHop renamed the service to VeloGo and replaced the fleet with all-new 'smart' bicycles, where intelligence (i.e. GPS tracking, etc.) is built into each bicycle, instead of relying on base stations, as with Bixi system. VeloGo began its service in the summer of 2015.[347]

Toronto, ON[edit]

From 2001 to 2006, BikeShare, operated by the Community Bicycle Network (CBN) in Toronto, was for a time the most popular community bicycle sharing program in North America. BikeShare was intended to overcome some of the theft issues by requiring yearly memberships to sign out any of the 150 refurbished yellow bikes locked up at 16 hubs throughout central Toronto. At its height, over 400 members could sign out a bike from any hub for up to three days. The hubs were located at stores, cafes and community centres where the staff would volunteer their time to sign bikes out and in.[348] Despite steadily increasing administrative, implementation, and maintenance costs, CBN could only charge users around 20 percent of actual costs, as users were unlikely to spend more than $50 per year for a membership. Without sufficient funds in the form of private and government grants, CBN was forced to discontinue BikeShare in 2006.[349]

Bixi Toronto launched in 2011 with 800 bicycles at 80 stations.[350] In 2013, when Public Bike System Company acknowledged that it could not repay its $3.9 million loan to the city, the system was taken over by the Toronto Parking Authority and renamed Bike Share Toronto.[351] In 2016, the city of Toronto signed a contract with PBSC to expand their system. Its network hosts 2,750 bicycles spread among 270 stations.[352][353] The Bixi system was introduced in Toronto in May 2011 as Bixi Toronto.

Vancouver[edit]

In 2016, Vancouver installed a bike sharing system, Mobi (bike share), operated by CycleHop Corp.[354]

Mobi (bike share) launched in July 2016 with 1500 bicycles at 150 stations.[355]

Victoria[edit]

In September 2017 a dockless bike share became available in the city of Victoria, starting with 150 bicycles.[26] The dockless bike share is operated by U-Bicycle.

Edmonton[edit]

From 2005 to 2008, a largely unregulated bike sharing program was operated by the Peoples' Pedal organisation in Edmonton, Alberta. The program suffered from high theft and vandalism rates, with 95% of the bikes that had been placed into service stolen or missing by 2008.[356]

Costa Rica[edit]

Cartago east of San José, Costa Rica started a bikeshare program.[357][358]

Mexico[edit]

EcoBici bicycles in Mexico City

Mexico City[edit]

EcoBici is one of the world's largest programs, with 452 stations covering a 35-square-kilometre (14 sq mi) area.[359][360]

In February 2010, the government of Mexico City inaugurated a new bicycle sharing network called EcoBici.[361] With distinctive red and white liveried bicycles, the network as of February 2015 consists of 444 stations with 6,500 bicycles.[362] With more than 240,000 registered users, it has been argued that Ecobici is the largest bicycle-sharing program in North America.[363] The system is run by a private company, Clear Channel México, but[364] funded by the government with an initial investment of 75 million pesos. Users of the system are required to purchase an RFID card at a cost of 400 pesos which will provide them with access to the bicycles for one year. Use of a bicycle is free for the first 45 minutes; extra charges are applied for use beyond this time limit.

Guadalajara[edit]

In December 2014, the government of the State of Jalisco implemented a bicycle sharing system called MiBici with 86 stations and 860 bicycles.[365] As of October 2016, it has 236 stations with 2 thousand bicycles.[366] This system uses the technology and the hardware of PBSC.[367]

Toluca[edit]

In November 2015, the Municipality of Toluca inaugurated a bicycle sharing system called Huitzi with 26 stations and 300 bicycles, using PBSC as a provider.[368][369]

In February 2016, the Municipality of Pachuca inaugurated a bicycle sharing system called Bici Capital with 6 stations and 140 bicycles.[370]

Puebla[edit]

From January 2017, the Puebla will have a system called Bici Puebla with 139 stations and 2,100 bicycles.[371]

United States[edit]

In the United States, public bicycle share programs have largely centered around major cities and universities.[372] Some corporate campuses have private systems.[373] According to a report by the National Association of City Transportation Officials, a total of 35 million bike-share trips took place within the United States in 2017 across 100 bike-share systems across the country, operated by eight companies.[374] With Seattle leading the way on dockless bike sharing in the U.S. in summer 2017, but other cities soon joining the ranks, nine months later, about 44% of rides were dockless.[374] As elsewhere, the bikes became controversial in various cities;[375] Dallas reportedly had 20,000 bikes on the streets,[376] they were essentially banned in New York City and San Francisco,[377] with Austin, Texas issuing emergency rules for their implementation.[378]

Bikes Belong (Dem/Rep Conventions), 2008[edit]

In 2007, Bikes Belong (now known as PeopleForBikes), an advocacy group financed by major bicycle manufacturers worked with city officials, local advocates, and the healthcare firm Humana to bring bikesharing to the Republican and Democratic 2008 conventions. Called "Freewheelin!" the program offered 1,000 bicycles at 12 stations throughout the downtowns of the host cities, Denver and Minneapolis/St. Paul, over the five days of each convention. Bikes Belong's stated goal was to provide a proof-of-concept that large-scale bicycle sharing that was exploding in European cities could work in U.S. cities and provide a valuable addition to the transportation mix. The program was popular among conventioneers, and helped the city of Denver to create a narrative around the "green" attributes of the convention. Both Denver and Minneapolis successfully pursued permanent bikesharing systems, with Denver B-cycle launching on 22 April 2010 as the first of its scale in the U.S., followed by Minneapolis' NiceRide system launching on 10 June 2010.[379]

Aspen/Basalt, CO[edit]

The system was launched in 2013 with 16 stations and 200 bikes, with provider PBSC.[380][381]

Albany, NY[edit]

In 2017, CDPHP Cycle! launched in Albany and three other Capital region cities.[382] The bikes can be locked to official docks or any other rack for a slightly higher fee.[383] The system is operated by CDTA.[384]

Alpharetta, GA[edit]

Alpharetta offers a bike share program operated by Zagster. Trips under 3 hours are free, and annual memberships are $20. Bikes can be rented from 4 stations throughout Alpharetta.[385] Bikes can be taken anywhere, including Alpharetta's Big Creek Greenway – a 12 foot wide concrete path that stretches 8 scenic miles terminating in Big Creek park.[386]

Atlanta, GA[edit]

In June 2016, Relay Bike Share launched as the bike share system for the City of Atlanta. The program—operated by Cyclehop, LLC and Social Bicycles, LLC—launched with 100 bicycles at 10 stations throughout the downtown area. The program aims to offer 500 bicycles across the city by the end of 2016.[387]

Austin, TX[edit]

In December 2013, Austin B-cycle launched as the bike share system for the City of Austin with 11 stations.[388] It is operated as a public-private partnership between the City of Austin and the non-profit Bike Share of Austin. The current system operates 46 bike share stations 24/7 in the downtown Austin area. Austin B-cycle set a national bike share record for the most checkouts per bicycle in a single day, 10.1 checkouts per bike, on 14 March 2015 during the SXSW festival.[389]

Baltimore, MD[edit]

In May 2014, over 40 bicycles were stolen from Baltimore Recreation and Parks department's bike-share program. The bikes were stolen during the city's Ride Around Reservoir program in Druid Hill Park. The bikes were set up to be lent out when a group of youths took them. The cost of replacing the stolen bikes is devastating to the program, which operates completely on donations.[390][391]

Birmingham, AL[edit]

Birmingham launched Zyp Bikeshare in October, 2015. Annual memberships are $75, with monthly passes for $20, 3-day passes for $12, and daily passes for $6.[392] Zyp also offers discounted annual memberships to individuals who qualify. Zyp operates 400 bikes at 40 kiosks. Bikes can be ridden anywhere in the downtown Birmingham area. Once a bike is unlocked, riders have 45 minutes to ride before incurring additional fees if they have not docked at another station. As well as traditional bikes, Zyp was the first bikeshare in North America to have electric pedal-assist bikes to help riders cover distances or mount hills faster.[393]

Boston, MA[edit]

In 2007, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Director of Bicycle Programs, Nicole Freedman, decided to bring bike sharing to the Boston area. The Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the regional planning agency for the metro-Boston region of 101 cities and towns, joined the effort. Brookline, Cambridge, and Somerville also participated.

On 28 July 2011, Boston launched its 60-station, 600-bike Hubway system, sponsored by the shoe manufacturer New Balance and funded in part by a $3 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration. The contract to operate was awarded to Alta Bicycle Share and the equipment provider was PBSC Urban Solutions. Bicycle-sharing was greeted with a mix of excitement and skepticism. In its first two and a half months, Hubway recorded 100,000 station-to-station rides. After recording 140,000 trips in four months, Boston's European-style bicycle-sharing system expanded outside city limits, planting stations across Cambridge, Somerville, and Brookline. Hubway has over 100 stations throughout the Greater Boston area.

In spring of 2018 Motivate the operator of Hubway changed sponsors from Hubway to the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and officially changed the name of the bike share program to Blue Bikes Boston.[394]

The university decided not to integrate with the city's CoGo system.[410] The Ohio State University announced plans to integrate electric assist bicycles as part of its bicycle share program launching in 2015.[411]

Denver, CO[edit]

On 22 April 2010, Denver became the first U.S. city with a large-scale smart-technology enabled bicycle sharing system with the launch of Denver B-cycle. The system launched with 45 stations and 450 bicycles throughout downtown, downtown-adjacent neighborhoods, and on higher-education campuses. Denver B-cycle's roots came from the "Freewheelin" bikesharing program which operated for 6 days during the 2008 DNC convention in Denver. In Denver, several B-cycle rental stations are located at RTD Light Rail Platforms. The Denver B-cycle program varies in cost depending on use. Fees range from $8 per day to $80 per year.[412]

It was the first North American system to be both branded as part of the public transit agency and accessible using the regional TAP card, though at the time of launch users were required to maintain separate accounts for each transit mode and pay separate fares.[431]

Madison, WI[edit]

In 1996, Madison, Wisconsin, instituted its Red Bikes Project, a public bike sharing program. These red-painted bicycles were available for the use of the general public, primarily in the student areas of State Street between the University of Wisconsin campus and the Wisconsin State Capitol. Initially, the only rule regarding the use of a Red Bikes Project bicycle was that it was required to remain outside and unlocked, and thus available for any passerby. After a surge in bicycle thefts and vandalism, the program was modified to require a valid credit card and $80 in security deposits for both the bicycle and the now-mandatory bicycle lock.[432] The program is now only available seasonally, from spring (when all snow has melted) to 30 November.[433] These days, Madison also uses the B-Cycle program, sponsored by Trek bicycles.

Manhattan, KS[edit]

In 2015, the Green Apple Bikes bike-share system started in Manhattan, Kansas that makes single-speed cruisers available free for 4-hour periods. The program is funded by a consortium of businesses, and bicycles are maintained by volunteers.[434][435]

In March 2011, DecoBike launched in Miami Beach, Florida.[439] The initial rollout of the program included "approximately 100 solar-powered stations and 1,000 custom-designed bikes available to residents and visitors."[440] This public bicycle sharing and rental program is owned and operated by DecoBike, LLC, a Miami-based company, and operates under a long-term agreement with the City of Miami Beach. The service is available to both residents and visitors: any adult with a major credit card can check out a bike to pedal to their next location. An iPhone app and an interactive map on the DecoBike website allows one to locate the nearest "station" and displays the number of bikes available and the number of free docking spaces in real-time.[441]

Milwaukee, WI[edit]

In August 2014, the City of Milwaukee in partnership with a local non-profit organization, Midwest Bike Share, launched Bublr Bikes[442] with 10 stations in downtown Milwaukee.[443] The system grew to 17 stations by Fall 2015, and now there are 50 stations in the City of Milwaukee[444] plus another 7 stations in the adjacent suburb of Wauwatosa[445](as of December 2016). Planning for additional stations within the City of Milwaukee is underway. Additionally, the adjacent communities of Shorewood and West Allis are expected to add around 7 stations each to the system in 2017.[446]

Minneapolis, MN[edit]

In June 2010, Minneapolis initiated operation of Nice Ride, one of the first examples of a large-scale municipal bike sharing program in the United States. Phase 1 included 700 bikes and 65 stations throughout Minneapolis[447] Due to popularity, the system was aggressively expanded into neighboring Saint Paul in 2011. As of 29 April 2012, Nice Ride had recorded a total of 330,000 trips, and a systemwide total of 1,330 bikes at 146 stations.[448] The system is provided by PBSC.[449] Minneapolis, Nice Ride needed six months to reach 100,000 station-to-station rides.[413]

The system launched with 50 docking stations and 500 bikes located in Downtown Pittsburgh, South Side Flats, North Shore, Strip District, Lawrenceville, Oakland, Bloomfield, and Shadyside.[460][461]

Portland, OR[edit]

One of the first community bicycle projects in the United States was started in Portland, Oregon in 1994 by civic and environmental activists Tom O'Keefe, Joe Keating and Steve Gunther. It took the approach of simply releasing a number of bicycles to the streets for unrestricted use. While Portland's Yellow Bike Project was successful in terms of publicity, it proved unsustainable due to theft and vandalism of the bicycles. The Yellow Bike Project was eventually terminated, and replaced with the Create A Commuter (CAC) program, which provides free secondhand bicycles to certain preselected low-income and disadvantaged people who need a bicycle to get to work or attend job training courses,[462]

On 19 July 2016 Portland launched Biketown,[463] a system with 1,000 GPS-enabled smart bikes sold by Social Bicycles and operated by Motivate with a $10 million, five-year naming sponsorship by Nike.[464] It was the continent's largest smart-bike system at the time of launch. The 100 stations covered 8.1 square miles but were concentrated most densely in downtown Portland and the Pearl and Northwest Districts.[465] Funding came entirely from a $2 million allocation of federal dollars approved by the Metro regional government, from Nike, and from ongoing user fees and smaller sponsorships.[466]

Salem, MA[edit]

In 2011, the city of Salem, Massachusetts launched a bike share program called Salem Spins offering use of bicycles free of charge, for use around the city. The seasonal program was financed in part with a $25,000 grant for a fleet of 20 bicycles.[467] The program is offered from April to October.

Salt Lake City, UT[edit]

On 8 April 2013, Salt Lake City launched GREENbike as the region's Bike Share brand. The program launched in downtown Salt Lake City with 10 stations and added two new stations less than four months later. The program will be expanding to 20 stations by 2014 with the goal of 100 stations in downtown Salt Lake City. Satellite GREENbike systems in cities such as Ogden are in the works and will be connected by the state transit authority's Frontrunner light rail train.[468]

San Francisco / Bay Area, CA[edit]

The Bay Area Bike Share system began operating in the San Francisco Bay Area in August 2013.

In August 2013 the Bay Area Bike Share system began operating in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. The system allocated half of its 700 bicycle fleet in San Francisco, and the rest along the Caltrain corridor in Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose.[469] In 2015, it was announced that the scheme would expand to 7,000 bikes, over 2016-2017, and would include the East Bay Area communities of Berkeley, Emeryville, and Oakland.[470]

San Diego, CA[edit]

The City of San Diego has a contract with Discover (formerly DECO) Bike, a docked bike-share, but in January 2018 the city attorney Mara Elliot opined that the city could still allow dockless bike sharing. Ofo and LimeBike began operating on 15 February 2018.[471] As of March 2018, Ofo, LimeBike, and Mobike offer dockless bike rentals within the city. LimeBike and Bird offer electric scooters, and LimeBike offers electric pedal-assist bikes as well.[472][473][474][475] However, there have been some concerns in high-pedestrian corridors.[476]

Seattle, WA[edit]

On 13 October 2014, Pronto Cycle Share launched with 500 bicycles and 50 stations. Pronto uses Motivate of New York City as the operator.[477] In January 2017, Seattle's mayor announced the system would be permanently shut down at the end of March 2017 due to funding shortfalls.[478] Dockless systems by LimeBike and Spin were introduced in July 2017 as their first large-city systems in the US.[479][480]

Stony Brook, NY[edit]

In April 2013, Stony Brook University launched the Wolf Ride Bike Share system with 4 stations and 48 bicycles. As of November 2015, the system consists of 12 stations and 78 bicycles using software and hardware provided by PBSC.[481][482]

Topeka, KS[edit]

On 15 April 2015, Topeka Metro Bikes launched with 100 smart bikes and 10 stations.[483] An additional 100 bikes were added to the system in April 2016.[484]

Tucson, AZ[edit]

In 1996, a pilot bicycle share project known as the Orange Bike Project was organised in Tucson, Arizona by Bootstraps to Share, a homeless advocacy organisation inspired by the Bikes Not Bombs movement.[485] Using funds from a taxpayer-funded government grant to obtain, recondition, and maintain 30 bicycles, project organisers announced plans to station the bicycles in downtown Tucson and areas adjacent to the University of Arizona.[485] The publicly shared bicycles, painted bright orange by Earl Scheib to identify them, were primarily intended for use by the homeless or those without means of affordable transportation.[485] The initial 30 bicycles placed into service for the Orange Bike Project were all stolen within a few weeks.[486] A total of 80 bicycles were eventually used in the Orange Bike Project, all of which were either stolen or vandalised beyond repair.[486] In one case, an Orange Bike Project bicycle was thrown in front of a freight train, in others, bikes were found with major frame damage consistent with deliberate vandalism.[486] The program was terminated after only five months of operation.[485][486]

Tulsa, OK[edit]

The Tulsa Townies bicycle project was launched in August 2007 by Saint Francis Health System to promote an active and healthy lifestyle in the community. This project is the first bicycle program of its kind in northeastern Oklahoma. The bicycle rental stations are located at the Tulsa River Parks trail along Riverside Drive at 19th and 41st streets and in Jenks at the 96th street Arkansas River pedestrian bridge.[487]

Washington, D.C. & Northern Virginia[edit]

In Washington, D.C., a privately operated bike-sharing project known as SmartBike DC opened for service in 2008 for the District of Columbia with 10 stations and 120 bikes. Operated by an advertising firm, Clear Channel Outdoor, the system was funded by advertising revenues from bus shelters on public streets, along with revenues from user membership and usage fees.[488] The program suffered from perennially low membership and rider usage rates, as well as a limited number of bike rental stations.[489] It was officially terminated in January 2011.[490]

Capital Bikeshare was launched in Washington, D.C. and Arlington County, Virginia in 2010.

On 20 September 2010, Arlington County, Virginia and the District of Columbia launched the U.S.'s first public-private partnership bikeshare system, Capital Bikeshare (CaBi) which replaced SmartBike DC. Unlike SmartBike, CaBi is a public taxpayer-supported (local government and federal funds) bicycle sharing program. The initial scheme involved some 1,100 bicycles at 100 stations located throughout the District of Columbia and parts of Arlington County, Virginia. The cost of planning, implementation and administration for Capital Bikeshare totaled US$5.0 million, with first-year operating costs of US$2.3 million for 100 stations.[491] CaBi was operated by Alta Bicycle Share (now Motivate International) with equipment from Montreal-based PBSC Urban Solutions. For a time, Capital Bike Share was the largest bike sharing system in the United States until May 2013.[492] The system expanded into Alexandria, Virginia in 2012, and Montgomery County, Maryland in 2013. Thus Capital Bike Share expanded to become the largest bike sharing system in the United States again with 344 stations again, before losing that title again in 2015.

As of 2017 Washington, D.C. has four dockless bike-share systems.[493][494][495][496]

Wauwatosa, WI[edit]

In June 2017, the city of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin partnered with Zagster to incorporate an adaptive bike-share station into their existing Bublr network. It is thought to be the first adaptive bike-share station in Wisconsin, and the dual partnership is thought to be the first of its kind in the United States.(ride share programs existed in Madison Wisconsin for free)[497]

California[edit]

In California, many cities have launched or have stated plans to launch their own bike-sharing programs, including the cities of Anaheim (currently 10 bikes at 1 station, with plans for 100 bikes at 10 stations),[498] Los Angeles (plans for 4000 bikes at 400 stations),[499] Santa Monica (plans for 250 bikes at 25 locations),[500] and San Diego[501] The San Francisco Bay Area's Bay Area Air Quality Management District, in partnership with Alta Bike Share, city governments, and transportation authorities, have announced plans for a pilot regional sharing program in 2013 for the San Francisco Peninsula and San Jose.[502][503]

In the Fall of 2009, the University of California, Irvine introduced its Zotwheels automated bike share program. Students and university employees may sign up for a Zotwheels membership card at an annual cost of $40, which enables the user to check out a bike from any bike station located throughout campus for a maximum of three hours and drop it off at any other station. A$200 charge is imposed for a lost, stolen, or severely damaged bike. Bicycle availability and station operational status may be determined using an interactive map. Revenues from membership fees are sufficient to offset only a small fraction of the total operating costs of the program; all remaining manufacture, installation, maintenance, and implementation costs of the Zotwheels systems and the bicycles themselves are borne by UCI.[504] Zotwheels was developed as a collaboration between the UCI Parking and Transportation Services, The Collegiate Bicycle Company, CSL Ltd, and Miles Data Technologies.[505]

In January 2018, e-bike provider Jump Bikes officially launched in San Francisco, becoming the first dockless bicycle-sharing system to launch in the city.[506]

ofo offers a partnership program with universities to provide sustainable campus transportation.[507] On 21 February 2018, ofo and Pomona College in Claremont, California launched the first college pilot program in California.[508] The collaboration will benefit not only the Pomona College community, but also the other Claremont Colleges in the Claremont Consortium.

This is a system of Free Public Transport launched by the San Lorenzo Government to achieve the reduction of the use of motor vehicles and enhance other means of non-motorized transport such as walking, or the bike itself.

The Biciudad Bike Sharing System is expanding along with the construction of a circuit of exclusive lanes for bicycles across the city.[510]

Brazil[edit]

Bike Itaú is a public bicycle sharing system in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is run by PBSC Urban Solutions and started on the 20th of February 2018, and is sponsored by the municipal government of Rio de Janeiro in partnership with Banco Itaú.[citation needed] The system replaces the old one operated by Serttel, a private concessionaire, that began operations in October 2011.[511]

A similar scheme was implemented in the city of São Paulo on 24 May 2012, called Bike Sampa. It is free up to the first hour of use, after which users are charged R$5 every 30 minutes.[512] There are about 140,000 registered users and, as of 6 May 2013, there had been 220,000 bicycle trips in the city. Serttel is also the concessionaire for this scheme, and the website of Bike Sampa is hosted by Mobilicidade. Other cities with similar bike sharing systems are operated by Serttel (www.serttel.com.br): Brasília, Belo Horizonte, Salvador, Porto Alegre, Santos, Recife, Belém, Manaus, Fortaleza, Vitória and Aracaju. Fortaleza deserves a highlight because its bike sharing system, named Bicicletar, has the highest relative use in Brazil. With 800 bikes and 80 stations the system register 6,4 trips per bike in workdays.[513]

Chile[edit]

There are three separate bike-share systems in the metropolitan area of Santiago, capital city of Chile: Bikesantiago, Bici Las Condes and Mobike.[514]

History[edit]

The commune of Providencia, part of the Santiago de Chile metropolitan area, implemented a public bike-share system in Latin America, named B'easy and starting services in August 2008 with a monthly membership of 1000 Chilean Pesos (US$2) and 4 stations.[515]

Santiago Metropolitan Area[edit]

Bikesantiago started its services in October 2013 in the metropolitan commune of Vitacura with 30 stations, 300 bicycles and a monthly membership of 4990 Chilean pesos (US$8). By November 2015, it had 25000 subscribers, 132 stations and 1882 bicycles on the communes of Lo Barnechea, Vitacura, Providencia (Replacing the original B'easy system), Santiago, Ñuñoa, Recoleta and Independencia and has contracts for a programmed expansion in a total of 14 communes, 200 stations and 2100 bikes in the Metropolitan Area of Santiago.[516][517]

Las Condes[edit]

Bici Las Condes is the communal bike-share system of Las Condes, part of the Metropolitan Area of Santiago. It started services in March 2015 with a total of 50 stations and 500 bikes and has a planned expansion to a total of 100 stations and 1000 bikes.[518] The decision of the Las Condes municipal council of not joining the Metropolitan area tender for an bike-sharing metropolitan interconected system was very controversial.[519]

Mobike[edit]

Mobike brought in the first dockless system in 2018, originally in the communes of Las Condes and La Reina only.

Colombia[edit]

The EnCicla Bike Share System in Medellín is operated by the metropolitan area of Aburrá Valley. EnCicla is integrated with the city's existing infrastructure of cycle routes, mass transit and public transport systems.[520]

Ecuador[edit]

In August 2012 the Municipality of Quito government established a municipal bicycle sharing system called Bici Q.[521][522][523] The Municipality of Cuenca implemented a public bicycle sharing system in 2013.[524][525] Bici Q is completely free and is available for anyone to users with membership cards, which can be obtained online or in person.[526][527]

Uruguay[edit]

The Movete Bike Share System in Montevideo. Montevideo is integrated with the city's existing infrastructure of cycle routes, mass transit and public transport systems.[528]

Asia[edit]

China[edit]

Initially, a number of traditional (third generation) docked public bike systems operated by local municipal governments opened across China, with the largest ones being in Wuhan and Hangzhou. The first was introduced in Beijing in 2007. However, third generation bike sharing is not considered successful for the majority cities in China. Bike sharing in Beijing virtually stopped and it also has encountered difficulties in Shanghai and Wuhan.[529]

In 2014, students from Peking University created a company called ofo and initialize the fourth generation bike sharing system in their campus. In 2017, a number of private competing app-based dockless bike-sharing programs have started to appear in numerous cities across China. The two largest dockless operators are Mobike and Ofo, others include Bluegogo and Xiaoming.[530][531] Many Chinese cities have experienced massive growth in the number and use these dockless bikeshare programs, clogging sidewalks around major commercial hubs and subway stations with parked bikes.[532] Given the speed of growth with these services, local governments did not have any regulations or planning to accommodate these systems.[533] However the Chinese government encourages the development of dockless bikes to reduce urban pollution. Early studies in Beijing and Shanghai have linked the massive increase of dockless bike shares to the decrease in the number of private automobile trips that are less than five kilometres.[534] In Guangzhou, the arrival of dockless bike shares had a positive impact in the growth of cycling modeshare.[535] The Transport Commission of Shenzhen noted a 10% decrease in private car trips after the introduction of dockless bike shares.[citation needed]

Beijing[edit]

A municipal scheme in Beijing launched in 2012 with the stationing of 2,000 bikes in Chaoyang district.[536] The scheme is scheduled to consist of 20,000 rental bikes and 500 kiosks, according to the Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform. The main operating area will be in business districts and near subway stations and major public venues. By 2015, authorities intend to have 50,000 bikes available, similar to the Hangzhou scheme that is their model.[537][538] This follows the failure of a scheme launched in 2005–2006 (ahead of Velib) and in the light of a 2011 announcement by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Transport that it expects to raise the bike share of urban commuter journeys from 20 to 23 per cent by 2015.[537]

In March 2017, Beijing saw over 200,000 dockless shared bikes from various companies entered service. Near the end of 2017 it has grown to 2.35 million for-hire bikes from 15 companies.[citation needed] The bikes are accessible via an app, and cost 1 RMB per hour plus a refundable damage deposit of 299 RMB. This is on top of the existing municipal run dock based bike network with 86,000 bikes. The Beijing municipal government has pledged to improve management and parking availability in response to the rapidly growing fleets of dockless bikes shares.[539] Beijing cycling mode share increased from 5.5% to 11.6% after the arrival of these dockless bike systems.[540]

Shanghai[edit]

In preparation for the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China, Shanghai launched a limited bike share programme which are accessible by RFID cards. Users could purchase 100-ride credits for about $30. Short rides are rewarded credits and longer rides subtract credits once the bikes have been re-docked. Shanghai planned to expand to 3,500 Bicycle Hot Spots throughout the entire city by 2010. Two years after the World Expo, Shanghai's bicycle sharing programme has been mostly limited to the Minhang District.[541][542]

Bikes from various bike-share companies in Shanghai

The Shanghai Bike Authority estimated that there are 280,000 shared bikes in Shanghai by March 2017, with a projected increase of 220,000 bikes by June.[543] In March 2017, the government in Shanghai is requesting a temporary ban on the introduction of new private "dockless" shared bikes.[544] Shanghai has prepared new regulations that will restrict rider ages to between 12 and 70 and bikes in service for more than three years in a row must be permanently removed.[545] Mobike alone operates 100,000 bikes in Shanghai and has claimed to have made Shanghai into the city with the world's largest bike share network.[546]

Haikou[edit]

Starting from around the beginning of 2017, Haikou, the capital of Hainan province, experienced a massive increase in the number of dockless bikes by Ofo, Mobike, and Quick To which and cost 2 RMB per hour. The fourth is the Haikou Public Bike System which is a traditional municipal run docked system.[547]

Wenzhou[edit]

Wenzhou has multiple bike share programs serving different districts of the city. The first one opened in 2012 serving Lucheng District with about 5,000 bikes and 180 stations.[548] Next year, a bike share with 2,200 bikes and 66 stations opened in Longwan District. At the same time, a separate bike share program with 1,040 bikes and 32 stations opened in Ouhai District. The latter of the two is being expanded to 3,250 bikes and 109 stations.[549] According to local government records, more than 20,000 dockless bikes from various private bike share companies have entered service in Wenzhou recently.[550]

Guangzhou[edit]

The Guangzhou BRT has a bike share program integrated around its BRT stations. According to the local government, in 2017, Guangzhou has a fleet of over 700,000 bikes in various public and private bike share programs. On average 4 million trips each day were made using share bikes.[551] The local government is reviewing traffic management strategies and road design standards to accommodate the increase in cycling traffic.[552][553]

Guilin[edit]

In 2014, Guilin City opened docked bike share with 3,000 bikes spread out over 100 stations.[554]

Hangzhou[edit]

The Hangzhou Public Bicycle bike-sharing system has 60,600 bikes and started in 2008. Bike-sharing stations can be found in Hangzhou every 100 metres. The first hour of use is free, followed by 1 yuan ($0.15) for the first hour, 2 yuan the second hour, and 3 yuan each subsequent hour.[555] In 2013 USA Today called the Hangzhou bike-sharing system the 'best in the world'.[556] From a March 2010 survey of Hangzhou Public Bicycle members and non-members it was found that 30% of Hangzhou Bike-Sharing users incorporated bicycle sharing into their most common commute. Furthermore, the bicycle sharing system captured modal share from bus transit, walking, autos and taxis. Another key finding in this study suggests that car ownership may not reduce the likelihood of bikesharing use. In fact, members of the Hangzhou system exhibited a higher rate of auto ownership in comparison to non-members.[557] Before the arrival of private dockless systems, Hangzhou was the largest bike share system in the world until it was overtaken by Wuhan. In 2011, the system had 2,050 bike-share stations with a fleet of over 50,000 bikes and serving 240,000 trips per day.[558] By 2015, it was expanded to over 84,000 bikes and 3,354 stations.[559]

In March 2017, the Kota Kinabalu City Hall began to implement its bicycle sharing service with 20 bicycles made available for the first stage. Those who want to use the service need to have the City Hall 'touch and go' card with RM200 (U$45) as deposit to use the bicycle for 24 hours with the money refunded when the bicycle is returned. Its stations are available in major hotels in the city as well as in Tanjung Lipat and in front of the Grace Court apartment in Sembulan with another 150 bicycles available in stores.[614]

Klang Valley[edit]

The Subang Jaya LRT/KTM station has been selected as the first pioneer for bicycle sharing system brought by Singaporean company into Malaysia. oBike rider will be charged RM1.00 per 15 minutes usage.[615][616]

South Korea[edit]

Seoul

Following trials, a bike-sharing system named Ddareungi was introduced in Seoul in October 2015 in select areas of the right bank of the Han River.[617] After a few months, the number of stations reached 150 and 1500 bikes were made available.[618] In 2016, the number of stations has increased steadily to cover new districts.[619] As of July 2016, there were about 300 stations and 3000 bikes available, and Seoul mayor Park Won-sun has confirmed his intention to increase the number of bikes available to 20,000.[620]

Daejeon

A bike-sharing system named Tashu was introduced in Daejeon from November 2007. On November 12, 2017, Daejeon City hosted a festival for the purpose of revitalizing public bicycles at the EXPO Citizen Plaza. [621]

Taiwan[edit]

National systems[edit]

A YouBike station in Hsinchu City, Taiwan.

Launched in Taipei City in 2009 and expanded through cooperation between the Taipei City Government and Taiwanese bike manufacturer Giant, YouBike is the largest bicycle-sharing service in the country; the system saw 22 million rentals in 2014, double the 11 million rentals in the previous year.[145]

As of July 2018, YouBike had expanded from Northern Taiwan to Central Taiwan, with services in Taipei, New Taipei, Hsinchu City, Hsinchu County, Changhua County, Taoyuan City and Taichung City.

Singaporean dockless bicycle-sharing platform oBike launched in Taiwan in April 2017 under the management of Taiwan's Aozhi Network Technology Co., Ltd.[622] The parking of the bikes in public areas such as sidewalks and motorcycle parking spaces caused controversy.[623][624] As of 20 June 2017, oBike was present in the cities of Keelung, New Taipei, Taipei, Hsinchu, Tainan and Kaohsiung as well as the counties of Nantou, Yilan, Hualien and Taitung.

Kaohsiung[edit]

A CityBike station in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

The southern city of Kaohsiung launched the country's first bicycle-sharing service, CityBike, on March 1, 2009 with 20 stations and 1,500 Merida bikes.[625] In 2011, CityBike's original operator, Tongli Development, transferred it to Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corporation. As of September 30, 2017, the service comprised 283 stations with approximately 3,000 bikes.

Turkey[edit]

Public bike sharing services in Turkey use Baksi system.[626] In Istanbul, the system called İsbike started in 2012 with 10 stations and 100 bikes along the Marmara coast on the Asian side of the city.[627]

Similar systems are operational in Kayseri, Izmir, Antalya, Kocaeli and Eskişehir.[626]

United Arab Emirates[edit]

8D Technologies bike station for ADBC Bikeshare in Abu Dhabi.

ADCB Bikeshare is the first and only bike sharing scheme in the United Arab Emirates. The scheme operates in the nation's capital city of Abu Dhabi, and is sponsored by Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank. ADCB Bikeshare launched December 2015. Run by Cyacle, the programme operates on Yas Island and Al Raha Beach, where there are 11 stations with 75 bicycles available for hire. In the first eight months of operation, 5,641 people became members of the scheme and rode 78,689 kilometres (48,895 miles) on 8,536 trips.[628]

Australasia[edit]

Australia[edit]

A number of Australian cities have had docking shared bike systems since 2010. In 2017 dockless bike sharing commenced in all the capital cities. The dockless systems experienced a higher degree of vandalism, including bikes dumped in rivers, than has been seen in other countries.[629] The dockless services all provided helmets with the bikes.

Docked systems[edit]

Melbourne Bike Share (MBS), the first municipal bicycle share system in Australia, was launched in Melbourne in June 2010. It started with 10 stations. Usage has been lower than expected and has required ongoing public subsidy. Take-up has been affected by the location of docking stations and the legal requirement for riders wear helmets, which are not provided with the bikes. Ridership doubled when $5 helmets were offered for sale from vending machines. Currently the MBS uses 500 cycles at about 50 stations around Melbourne's central business district.[630]

One of nineteen E-bike docking stations across Newcastle CBD, NSW, Australia.

Newcastle's central business district launched an e-bike share scheme on 21 May 2018, including 19 docking stations with 100 electric bikes.[631] The bike scheme was launched as a partnership between the operator BYKKO, and Transport for NSW. An initial pilot program funded with $2000AUD[632] of council grant money was conducted,[633] though evidence of the evaluation does not appear to be posted publicly. After speaking with the local newspaper, BYKKO said the aim of the project is to complement the existing public transport system.[634]

The Brisbane CityCycle, operated by JCDecaux, started on 1 September 2010 and has grown to include 2000 bikes in 150 stations.[630][635] Its operation has depended on public subsidy. Initially, helmets were not provided with the bikes, but this was later changed. After only achieving 80,000 trips in its first twelve months[citation needed], this increased to 522,388 in the 2016-17 financial year.[636]

Dockless systems[edit]

In 2017 dockless systems were launched in a number of Australian cities.

Sydney
  • oBike has placed 1,000 bikes since July 2017.[629]
  • Reddy Go started with 1,500 bikes, also in July 2017, and has expanded to over 2,000 bikes.[629] The company quit Sydney in July 2018, citing "red tape".[637]
  • Ofo launched with 600 bikes in October 2017.[638] In July 2018 Ofo announced it was leaving Australia.[639]
  • Mobike distributed up to 500 bikes in November 2017.[640]
Melbourne
  • oBike placed 1,250 bikes in Melbourne since July 2017. There has been notable vandalism of the bikes in the first few months, including being dumping in the Yarra River.[629]
Perth
Adelaide

Ofo launched distributed 50 bikes through North Adelaide in October 2017.[642] In July 2018 Ofo announced it was leaving Australia.[639]

Brisbane
A bicycle sharing station in Newstead, Brisbane

Subscriptions for CityCycle, a Vélib-style community bike hire scheme by JCDecaux for Brisbane started on 1 September 2010 and has grown to include 2000 bikes in 150 stations from the University of Queensland to Tenerife.[630][635] Its operation has depended on public subsidy. Initially helmets were not provided with the bikes but this was later changed. After only achieving 80,000 trips in its first twelve months, by 2016-17 this had increase to 522,388.[636]

The bikes were linked to the public transport go card – a single card covering all buses, trains, ferries and the Gold Coast light rail system. In 2017 it was announced new bank card facilities would be added to the stations.[635]

Gold Coast

Mobike started with 200 bikes around Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach in February 2018 with the number expected to grow to 2,000 by the time of the Commonwealth Games in April.[643] Mobike has been granted exclusive rights to operate bike sharing by the local council and will partner with Transit Australia Group and Good Cycles.[644]

New Zealand[edit]

In both Auckland and Christchurch, Nextbike provide some limited cycle sharing facilities; plans are in hand to expand these. The New Zealand Transport Agency is working with Auckland Transport and the Christchurch City Council respectively to investigate cycle sharing schemes for each city, and independently a private consortium proposes to have a scheme in place in Auckland during 2017.[645]

OnzO was the first dockless bike share to launch in New Zealand, arriving in Auckland in late 2017,[646] and in Wellington in 2018.[647]

Universities[edit]

Canada[edit]

India[edit]

Mexico[edit]

United Kingdom[edit]

Several cycle hire schemes in UK towns and cities overlap their university areas, e.g. the one at Stirling.[653] Others, e.g. Leeds,[654] offer longer-term cycle hire. Kingston University are reported to have a scheme called KU Bikes due to begin in early 2018,[655] while Derby anticipates that Hourbike will run a scheme in Derby operating electric bikes, around the same time.[656]
