Vienna has introduced software on trams and buses that shows passengers the number of bicycles available at upcoming stops with bike-sharing terminals.

The technology – a joint project between public transport operator Wiener Linien, Citybike Wien and INFOSCREEN, the manufacturers of the screens – was trialled in August and fully introduced across the city earlier this month.

The software has access to the Citybike Wien server, which allows the screens to show passenger real-time information on the number of bicycles currently available at each stop.
