A network designed for urban living!(11/10/2011)
The network of Cyclocity stations was designed to promote short trips in town, facilitating the movement of city-dwellers across the city.
Users can easily find the stations nearest to their point of departure or destination by checking the station map, available at the terminals and on the service website.
An iPhone and Android application was developed to enable users to locate their nearest Cyclocity station easily. With the iPhone in their pocket, users can check the “AllBikesNow” app to find out how many bikes are at the station, look at the map or find out about bike services managed by Cyclocity.
Ideally located near railway stations, bus stops or tram routes, Cyclocity stations connect the different means of transport and enable users to make the most of the existing facilities.
“I can use the bike instead of or in addition to another form of transport. It provides a vital link in the mobility chain” (Bruno Marzloff, Mobility Sociologist).
The stations are also installed near strategic locations, such as shopping centres, leisure facilities or universities.
