A Solar Powered Bike Sharing System
Copenhagen gets a sustainable bicycle network in a concept design by Stefano Marchetto.
Already one of the most bike-friendly cities in the world, Copenhagen is used as the setting for an interesting conceptual bike sharing system. Termed “Bicyclus” by Italian designer Stefano Marchetto, the new eco-friendly plan would reuse some 8,000 bikes that are abandoned every year and further facilitate easier commutes for residents through the city.
The Bicyclus idea intends to upgrade the city’s current world-famous bike system run by Bycykelservice. Since 1995, the city has systematically expanded the number and accessibility of bicycle lanes and routes, making bicycle travel more efficient than using cars or buses.
