The Bike Share System is now being suggested to be an integral part of the city. The bicycles should function as censors and inform the system about certain behaviors so that the system can react due to the situation. In addition, the bicycles are equipped with GPS und W-Lan, so they are connected to each order and can inform the system about their position and status.
New Bike Share System in Copenhagen by RAFAA
To increase the number of commuters traveling by bicycle from 37% to 50% by 2015, approximately 25.000 bicycles have to be integrated into the urban fabric, and these bikes will need more than 20.000 m2 of storage space. We see a high risk of overloading the squares, streets and stations of Copenhagen. In short, these brand new bikes are introduced in order to aim at calling the action of reducing pollution problems which occur in large cities of the world.
Bikes are stored in an interesting trough locking system that recharges the batteries in the bike and hopefully makes them attractive in the public spaces
Bikes can also be stored vertically on walls getting them completely off the streets
A credit card or a maestro card is used to check bikes out. The first 30 minutes are free, and 5 DKK per 30 minutes will be charged. The fee per hour rises proportionally so that the bikes stay in circulation
Bikes have an LED lighting system to help the rider see at night as well as for pedestrians for cars to more easily see the bike
As more bikes are needed for riders, more creative solutions will be necessary to store bikes
Commuters can reserve bikes ahead of time so one is ready when they arrive at a certain pick up point, especially train stations
