Bicing is a bicycle sharing system in Barcelona inaugurated on March 22, 2007. Bicing is a simple, practical and sustainable way to plan your trips around the city. To go wherever you want and when you want, without smoke or noises.
The electric Bicing network is completely complementary to the current Bicing network, thus broadening the offer of long and ascending trips. This network is distributed in 41 stations in car parks and 5 stations in surface.
Use of the system is based on membership, and users can subscribe online or by visiting a service office. The Bicing member cards are only sent to addresses in Catalonia in an attempt to prevent tourists from using the system.
Bicycling is a zero carbon mode and it can provide health benefits to the riders. Besides, it can reduce congestion and improve access of people to public transportation.
