not enough phone lines

After the previous problems of bicing:
  • not enough stations at the beginning
  • full stations, because there are not enough vans moving them around
  • empty stations for the same reason and because there are not enough bikes
we got a brand new one now. Lets call it the "Red Screen Of Wait". It usually happens at the rush hour before or after work, the stations can't build up a phone connection to the main office and you have to wait and try again and again until you get through. It is not too bad, but I hope they will work on that problem.
They plan to increase the number of stations to 200 with 3000 bicycles till end of this year, so some more investment in to the rest of the system makes sense too.
