Latest Velo Mondial project:
VeloCittà: for Bicycle Share Systems improvement
VeloCittà aimed to provide inspiration and build capacity in local authorities and Bicycle Share System stakeholders. We worked with stakeholders that were engaged with the design and implementation of effective and resource-efficient solutions. This resulted in a boost in the uptake of Bicycle Share Systems and set in motion a beneficial snowball effect on urban cycling as a whole. The project ended in February 2017 but will see its results continued in the Platform ‘Bike Share Cities’ and the ‘Bike Share Workspace’.
