"Bicycle-sharing schemes are experiencing a major breakthrough in cities at a global scale."

Recent technological transformations and innovations are dramatically reshaping our cities and increasing their options to introduce and manage bike-sharing services (BSS) as a new mode of transport. To ensure a safe and sustainably integrated urban mobility network including a BSS, it is essential for local governments and bike-sharing operators to work together.

This Working Paper outlines the role of civil administrators and private entities in working together to develop appropriate legislation, provide adequate infrastructure, and manage the operation and maintenance of the service.
