Do you have access to the people who implement bicing in Barcelona?
Do you have any idea about the cost regarding the implementation of the bike stations, the software, etc...?

Any information would be highly appreciated.

No, I have no connection to the bicing people.

There is some information online about the rough costs of bicing. If I remember correctly it was around four million Euros in the first year.

The software is some custom software, which is also used in Washington and Perpignon. The station run on Windows CE as OS.

That is about it, best thing is probably to talk to the bicing people dirrectly.
