Bike sharing programmes are a great way to improve sustainable mobility. But they need adequate, secure bike storage to work properly.
We designed a secure cycle shelter and vertical bike storage carousel for a university bike-sharing system. The challenge was to fit all the bikes in the limited space available, while providing an easy to use service.
Our client, BUAP University, could not find any option to fit the required number of bikes in the limited space available. Our innovative vertical carousel design fits 26 bikes in just 10m2 – a huge reduction compared to conventional options.
The user (in this case the staff member in charge of the kiosk) can hang each bike on a hook and rotate the carousel to access more storage.
