Future

Melbourne Share Bike Forum:

After an amazing Common Bike pilot we discussed
the future of Bike sharing in Melbourne.



Common Bike was a three week Public Bicycle pilot initiated by RMIT Industrial Design students.
The Government of Victoria has announced a $5 million tender to spend on a public bicycle system.
