World’s #1 Bike-Sharing Program Celebrates 6-Year Anniversary (Infographic)
July 21st, 2013 by Zachary Shahan
Vélib, Paris’ groundbreaking bike-sharing program that one could argue is responsible for the boom in 3rd-generation bike-sharing programs in major cities around the world (I would argue that), has now been around for 6 years. (Wow. Time flies….)
- The top Vélib stations have a bike checked out every second!
- Vélib is the top bike-sharing program in terms of bikes per inhabitant (at least, among major cities) with 1 bike per 97 inhabitants.
OK, I’ll admit, I didn’t understand some of the French statements in there.
