🇫🇷 Paris prepares for Olympic frenzy

With the 2024 Olympic Games being held in Paris, the city is currently preparing itself for over 15 million visitors; Velib’, Paris’ bike-sharing scheme operated by Smovengo, is also getting battle-ready by adding 3,000 new bikes to the existing fleet.

On top of this, 10 pop-up stations with 3,600 docks will be installed around the Olympic venues, in order to ensure ease of parking for the service’s users. These new additions have increased Velib’s fleet to 20,000 vehicles.

With the addition of Lime, Dott, and TIER’s private schemes, Paris now has around 40,000 shared bikes on its streets.
