More and more our cities organize services to try to have less impact from pollution into our lives. An initiative that is arriving also in our cities is the bike sharing. The town organizes and creates a bicycles fleet. That citizens or those who are working in the city can use it in exchange, by a payment of a fee, which may be a general membership fee or a consumption fee. Obviously those who use the bikes should return them undamaged after use in one of the points provided by the city as a “parking”.
