You get to choose.. yes! You get to choose the bike you are going to ride for 30 minutes for free within the city (as long as you are a registered user). But, you can’t choose the color as red is the only option!
The Eco Bici was implemented 2 or 3 years ago and its purpose is to promote the use of bikes as a regular transport. For starters you pay the equivalent to $30US to have access to the bikes for one year. There are several stations around downtown so you can “hop around”. If you take longer than 30minutes a day, you will be charged an extra fee.
There are these kind of trucks that re-distribute the bikes among stations so you can always find one to use.
Similar concept in Lodon. Know of any other place where bike is a proposal?
Some other countries that have the same: Lyon, The Netherlands, Barcelona, Helsinki, Sweden, Canada..
