city of bordeaux, france’s bike sharing program. considered a cross between a bicycle and a scooter,
the design is set to promote and continue encouraging citizens to chose this mode of transportation within the city,
which has seen the number of cyclists triple in the last 15 years following the implementation of a initiatives
such as limited car traffic and developing the tramway.

this idea for a new means of locomotion sprang from the analysis of much feedback from the citizens of bordeaux,
diverse opinions, constructive and intelligent ideas and the specificities of bordeaux. this revolutionary solution seems
to be the inventive and appropriate response to questions being asked regarding pedestrian areas.
