The public bike hire project has been successfully implemented in Melbourne, Australia. The Melbourne Bike Share scheme offers public transportation via bicycle at a cost of $2.50 per day. Should you require it for a week, it will be $8. As per Tim Pallas, roads minister, the project only offers the bike and with Victoria’s state helmet laws, civic leaders are faced with the challenge of providing the helmets.
Potential customers of the project should bring their own helmets or the option to join the bike hire scheme to get a free helmet. Regular users of the bikes for hire will be given a keycard for a $50 annual fee. Hotels and shops are also offering free or affordable helmets for rent or purchase.
The first 30 minutes of the bike ride is free. The penalty for unreturned bikes is $500. the bicycles can be adjusted on the height of the seat….
