The Velib is a public bicycle rental programme originally launched in 2007 in Paris, France.
The scheme, which has since attracted interest from other cities around the world looking to cut carbon emissions and congestion, has seen 20,000 bicycles deployed at 750 distribution stations throughout the city.
Commuters subscribe to the scheme on daily, weekly or monthly basis and can then use the bikes as and when required.
