Description / Objectives

A more efficient service thanks to the data on Bicing use.

Having a bicycle to move around the city is nothing new. It would almost seem strange if Barcelona did not have a service like this one, now that, as the years go on, almost all large metropolises have one.

It would be easy to forget that when we launched Bicing for the first time in March 2007, it was just three months before more than 84,000 people were using the service. Back then we were not collecting so much data, but now we are. Data is collected through the service app, which also provides a list of stations, bike availability and the best routes to get to your destination.

What do we do with the usage data collected by the app? Data is analysed in an ethical way in order to better share the bikes and optimise vehicle transit.
