Today I’d like to write about Valenbisi because I appreciate this kind of service every single day since I am here in Spain and I think that there’s a brilliant working logistics system behind it.
Valenbisi is getting more and more in vogue. Instead of products being transported from one point to another people use Valenbisi for shifting wherever they want to. The logistics behind Valenbisi is easy, fast, comfortable, sustainable and cost-efficient.
Valenbisi is a public service offered by the company El Mobiliario Urbano S.L.U.. The company provides access to registered users to hire bicycles within Valencia. The bikes are simply hired by self-service and are exclusive for the urban routes in Valencia. You can easily create your Valenbisi account online and get a card for using the service. Only for less than 30 euro you can use the system the whole year. Furthermore there’s the possibility of a short-term contract. All over Valencia are placed stations for hiring and releasing the bikes. You don’t have to care where to park your bike or how to hedge of thievery. The first 30 minutes of use are free of charge, for longer use the customer has to pay low charge.

Moreover Valenbisi is a transportation system which is really friendly for the environment by producing no pollution at all.
Sometimes there are some little problems to find available bikes as well as to get free stations for parking them at special locations at special times. Like for example in the morning when many students drive to the university by Valenbisi, it can be a big problem to find a free station there. But El Mobiliario Urbano S.L.U. doesn’t ignore that and even tries to antagonize this problem by picking up some bikes by trucks.
In my opinion Valenbisi is really a great logistics invention and I didn’t want to miss it here in Valencia!
