Free bike-hire systems offer a convenient and


environmentally-friendly way of travelling in
congested cities. Visitors can come into the city
centre by car or public transport and have a bike at
their disposal.
Velib is a bike-hire system in Paris which was
launched on 15th July 2007. When it is fully
implemented, Velib will offer more than 20,000
bicycles parked at 1,500 stations. Taxpayers are
reassured that the system is not financed from the
city budget. Instead, it is operated by an outside
vendor in exchange for the use of outdoor
advertising space.
However, other cities hoping to emulate the success
of Velib should remember that it wasnt an overnight
sensation. Since the idea was conceived in 1995,
the city has built more than 370 kilometres of bike
paths and bike lanes and established several under30kph zones to reduce risks to cyclists. By contrast,
the cycling infrastructure in other European cities
consists only of a disconnected collection of routes.
