Spotcycle™ supports new international bike-share systems
Montreal – May 15th, 2012 – The bike-share mobile application Spotcycle, created by 8D Technologies, opens its doors to several new North American and international bike-share systems. Starting today, B-Cycle™ bike-share users, including the U.S. cities of Denver CO, Madison WI and Fort Lauderdale (Broward) FL, will have access to Spotcycle. Coming soon, several other bike-share schemes will be supported, including Paris' Vélib'™, Barcelona's Bicing™ and Miami Beach's DecoBike™.
Spotcycle is a free mobile application that helps users from around the world get the most out of their bike-share system. The application can be used to locate bike stations, display bike and bike dock availability, display bike path networks, and even create and share personalized bike routes. Last April, Spotcycle was placed on top of the list of free mobile apps for a more sustainable lifestyle in the Tech section of USA Today's American Life: Green Living insert. Spotcycle is available for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.
