5 1. Country overview Spain has a total population of 46,661,950 inhabitants and an area of roughly 504,645 square kilometers with a concentration of population around the coast and the central capital, Madrid. Public Bike Sharing in Spain has expanded rapidly during the last few years. There are several clear stages in the development of public bike sharing in Spain. In the early stage (from 2002 to 2005) the first automatic systems appeared and the existing manual systems started to be promoted. In the second stage (from 2005 to 2007) 20 new systems were implemented. There was a clear support with funding being granted by administrations. The third boom stage (from 2007 to 2009) brought the first of the large scale systems. Currently we are facing a maturing stage; enlargement of public metropolitan biking projects, further and larger grants (IDAE and other administrations) and studies at a national level (Probici, BP impact). A national conference to share experiences of public bike schemes has run annually since Participation in the European OBIS project is also an important achievement for benchmarking these experiences and developing a Pan European perspective. Figure 1-1: Cities provided with bike sharing in Spain. Image: Bicicleta Club de Catalunya (BACC). Spain s basic feature is the diversity of the systems, cities and uses especially concerning cities. In OBIS examples of small towns like the Ribera Alta communities as well as big cities like Barcelona or Seville can be found. There are different sorts of systems both automatic as well as manual and frequency and use of bike sharing also varies a widely depending on the city. Within OBIS a total of seven cases will be studied which includes small, medium and large centres of population.manual and automatic systems are also included. These seven case studies represent around 350,000 subscribers, 800 stations and 10,000 bicycles in total 4

6 2. Market Potential The market analysis of public bike systems in Spain is based on collaboration established with the Spanish OBIS National Advisory Board, and in particular with IDAE and support consultant Esther Anaya. Together, a record of implemented public bike systems has been established, which holds estimates of bikes and stations implemented for the years 2007, This database has been checked for the case study sites of OBIS and has been revised where necessary. It is anticipated that this monitoring will continue in 2009, but for the short-term, an estimate of the systems implemented in 2009 (including extensions to OBIS case study sites) has been used. From the data for the years 2007 to 2009 an extrapolation is made which gives the estimates for 2010 given in the following table and figure: N u m b e r o f b i c y c l e s B i k e s t a t i o n s S p a i n e s t i m a t e S p a i n e s t i m a t e S p a i n e s t i m a t e S p a i n e s t i m a t e Table 2-1: Estimation of bicycles and stations in Spain.

Population Area Temperature Average Maximum Minimum 199, km² 11.7 C 26.8 C 0.6 C Table 4-1: Facts and figures of Pamplona. A Cycle Implementation Plan for Pamplona from 2008 to 2013 is being developed. In this period all Pamplona s districts will be connected by bike lanes. All together, 103 kilometers of bike lanes will be available across the whole city. This plan of action has a two stages. In the first stage up to 2010, new bike lane sections will link Pamplona s districts. From 2011 to 2013 connections within each district will be made. This project will develop a huge bike network, providing attractive routes for cyclists within the city. Currently there are a total of 41 kilometers of cycle lane in Pamplona. 20 kilometers belong to paths along the Arga river park and 5.3 kilometers are being implemented within the city development of Lezkairu. Today there are cycle lanes in Vuelta del Castilla, Fuente del Hierro and in the direction of the University of Navarra. There is also a biking lane in new developments of Ezkaba (Donantes de Sangre passage) and Buztintxuri. Figure 4-1: Map of Pamplona and location of bike stations. Image: N-Bici. 9

11 Pamplona 4.2. N-bici The initial service, inaugurated in June 2007, comprised 5 stations with 120 parking points available for a total of 101 bicycles. In a second stage increasing this to 20 stations with 350 bicycles is planned. To rent a bicycle, an identification card is needed. When this card is placed close to the bike station reader, the bicycle is released and the system collects the user s data. After having used the bicycle, it is returned to the parking point and the card is passed once again through the reader. By using an electronic card, the user is able to collect the bicycle at any parking point located at the station and to return it to any free point at this or another station in a simple and flexible way. The first 60 minutes are free. For any additional hour or part hour a rate of 1 is charged. The maximum rental time is 4 hours. Once the bike has been returned, another one may be rented after 30 minutes have passed. The service operates every day at the following hours: From April 1 to September 30: from 7.30 a.m. to 8.00 p.m From October 1 to March 31, from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Figure 4-2: Map of the five current bike stations of N-bici and cycling network.

The service has a total of 117,928 users both short and long standing and 250 stations distributed through the city (April 2009). 11

13 Seville The stations are situated throughout the inner-city with a distance of around 200 meters between each one, with many situated next to public transport stops to allow for intermodal use. The bikes can be borrowed from, and returned to, any station in the system, making it suitable for one way travel. Each station has between 10 and 40 parking slots to fix and lock the bicycle. Figure 5-2: Bike stations of Sevici. Image: Sevilla en bici. SEVICI short duration subscription is valid during 7 consecutive days where the user may enjoy a limited number of bike journeys. The first 30 minutes of rental are free. After 30 minutes, the next hour is charged at a rate of 1 and the following hours at a rate of 2 per hour. SEVICI long duration subscription is valid during one year where an unlimited number of bike journeys can be made. After 30 minutes, the next hour is charged at a rate of 0.50 and the following hours at 1 each. To borrow a bike with a yearly pass, one simply swipes the contactless RFID-card at a station kiosk to be personally identified by the system, which then unlocks a bike from the support frame. With a weekly pass, a ticket is printed with an ID number that can be punched in at the station kiosks to identify the user account. Bicycles can be used for the first 30 minutes at no extra cost. The next hour costing 0.50 and all subsequent use costing 1 euro per hour for the yearly pass. To return a bicycle one simply places the bike in a spare slot at a station, the bike is recognized automatically and is locked into place. Currently the service is being offered 24 hours a day during the whole year.
