Bicycle sharing service launches in Toyama

Bike-Sharing_Service_in_Toyama_City

French advertising agency JCDecaux started a bike sharing system — like the one they have in Paris — in Toyama. It’s a neat idea: there are 15 bicycle stations in Toyama with 10 bicycles each, and for 500 yen a month, you can take a bike from station to station for up to 30 minutes. This may help reduce bicycle parking congestion on sidewalks, although I’m not sure how it will help people commute from their homes to the station.
