A couple of weeks ago the City of Stockholm decided to end the agreement with the company behind the rental bikes, Inurba Mobility, due to security issues. There have been several examples of the bike frames breaking. One person had to be taken to hospital after the frame broke in half during a ride.
The photo shows one of many parking lots where stockholmers could rent a bike for a small fee before they were all taken away.
There have been a lot of problems surrounding the rental system even before the accidents, connected to the business agreement.
It’s now unsure when there will be another system in place in Stockholm.
