Bike Dispencer

The Bike Dispenser is a fully automated, space-saving storage and dispensary system for bicycles. It was developed to increase ease-of-accessibility to those business areas lying within three kilometers of commonly used public transportation junctions. And although the initial target-users for the Bike Dispenser are indeed commuters, its ease-of-use, simplicity, adaptability and cost-effectiveness make it applicable to a multitude of purposes like parking-facilities, metro stations, shopping centers etc. The Bike Dispenser is the most compact storage system for bicycles in the world, with specially designed bicycles positioned a mere 17 cm apart from each other. This makes the cost for the system an amazing 70% lower than other known automated bicycle storage systems.The Bike Dispenser capitalizes on the idea of the bicycle as the missing, final link in the commuter’s mobility chain. Furthermore, since the bicycles are stored inside, the risk of theft, vandalism and wear of the bicycles is reduced considerably.
