Saw this cool bike and ride system in Zaragoza last month. You pay 20 euros a year, there are 29,000 swipe card holders, there were 1,000 bikes and a waiting list of 20,000 people !! You pick them up from 100 different station throughout the city centre. Started in 2008 with 300 bikes its been a big hit, 90% of the card holders renew. They reckon over 3 Million trips during the working week. Because there has been such demand the use of private bikes has increased as well. Good for parking good for green Spain. Despite the waiting list there is no money to extend the innovative idea ! Que pasa ?????
