JCDecaux SA (Euronext Paris: DEC) tell us that they are launching the iPhone application AllBikesnow for its self-service bicycle hire schemes.
AllBikesnow is designed to provide innovative assistance to users of the self-service bicycle hire schemes operated by JCDecaux – it’s a free application of course and is designed to provide enhanced access to a wealth of information for users to the self-service bicycle hire schemes managed by JCDecaux.
Developed with the Zenexity Company  AllBikesnow uses the iPhone’s mapping and geolocation functions to simplify access to the service by providing real-time information about the availability of bicycles and free spaces in docking stations.
Put simply AllBikesnow allows you to ask?
- Where can I find a bike near here?
- Where can I return a bike near here?
- Where can I find a docking station near a particular address?
- How full are my favourite docking stations?
- What is the state of my account?
- How much did my last rental cost?
Jean-Charles Decaux, co-CEO of JCDecaux told us “JCDecaux’s experience of running self-service bicycle hire schemes in 65 cities and 8 countries allowed us to refine our understanding of users’ needs. This is why we are now launching the iPhone application AllBikesnow. This new service with its wealth of features will enhance users’ ability to adapt the self-service bicycle hire scheme to their individual needs and further promote the flexibility of this form of sustainable mobility.”
AllBikesnow works for the self-service bicycle hire schemes set up in; Aix-en-Provence, Amiens, Besançon, the Brussels Capital region, Cergy Pontoise, Dublin, Luxembourg, Lyon, Marseille, Mulhouse, Nancy, Nantes, Paris, the inter-municipal structure of Plaine Commune, Rouen, Seville, Santander, Toulouse and, in the very near future, Toyama.
The application is available in five languages: English, Spanish, Dutch, French, and Japanese.
