Bicincittà: Solutions for Sustainable Mobility

Bicincittà is a bike sharing network where the bicycle becomes a shared means of transport. This system offers a number of public bicycles to citizens in a simple and easy to use fashion. It also gives the administration of Bicincittà the opportunity to monitor the service in real time. Bicincittà hopes to become a serious travel alternative along with the other traditional means of public transport with the added advantage of being convenient, healthy and fun.Bicincittà also aims to play a role in city planning. The statistical data gathered create a precious bank of information that management uses to repair materials and make strategic decisions regarding bicycle mobility and sustainable transport within the city.
