Bicing is a public bike-sharing scheme that makes 6,000 mechanical and 300 electric bikes available to the general public for journeys around the city. This individual public-transport system makes it easier for the general public to make regular journeys by bicycle, in a sustainable, healthy and economical way.
Bicing is fully integrated into the city's transport system and is easy to use in combination with other means of public transport. This is because it has been designed to ensure public transport access close to bicycle pick-up and drop-off points, based on intermodal criteria for connections between bicycles and other means of transport, as well as proximity to other areas that generate and attract travelling.
The system operates on the basis of a personal, non-transferable, subscription card bearing the user's name. This card identifies the user in the system and must be used at the pick-up and drop-off points, to take out and return bicycles. Bicing users must be over the age of 16.
