The definition of “Bicycle Stations” reads: typically enclosed parking structures that securely house bicycles from theft and from the elements; bike-sharing or rental services may be provided.
The one for “Bicycle Parking” narrows down to: a secure location on-site or within a facility for the temporary storage of bicycles.
The Cicletteria di Parma, in the North of Italy, is a popular bike services point that combines both of the above purposes close to the city Train Station. With 50 bicycles, 2 cargo bikes, 1 tandem, and 6 e-bikes available for rent and 600 stalls for external bikes + 80 for mopeds and motorbikes, it is an incredibly active location in the multi-modal, door-to-door journeys of commuters and visitors alike.
Our JPass mobile app is one of the latest addition to the Cicletteria’s digital services offer: in fact, it acts as key to access the bike rental and storage services, both for recurrent users and for transient ones.
At the entrance, a dedicated scanner reads the users’ digital subscription saved in the app, or as an alternative their monthly pass, or daily ticket.
If the user has just stepped out of the train and needs a bike to cycle his way to work or more pleasant destinations, JPass is the best way to pre-book a bicycle and ensure an active continuation of the journey.
We are proud that JPass technology will make it even easier for people to combine cycling and rail!
