France introduces a bike-sharing program for kids!
Bike-sharing programs are perhaps one of the most eco-friendly and energy-efficient ways to get people around, particularly those who don’t have the access to their own green vehicles. Recently, France has decided to bring a bike-sharing initiative to the newer generation, helping them understand the need for energy-efficient transport at a younger age. The P’tit Vélib program will be an extension of the already-popular Vélib cycle hire network and will make 00 bikes available to children as young as two!
The bikes that are part of the initiative will be manufactured by JCDecaux and will come in four different sizes, including a pedal-less balance bike for children aged two to four, one with stabilizers for ages three to five, and two larger models. The bikes will cost a maximum of approximately $16 a day and the initiative is bound to work as an inspiration too!
