In Gothenburg, Sweden, there is a bike rental service called “Styr & Ställ” with over 50 stations around town where you can pickup a bike and use it for 30 minutes at almost no cost and then drop it of at another station. Perfect if you do not want to risk getting your precious E-bike stolen.
Last summer it happened to me a couple of times that the station at my destination were full when i arrived there, forcing me to drop the bike of farther from my goal than I planned. When i found out that there exists an API to get the info I created an Android application to prevent this from happening again.
In the application you can view all stations and your own position on the map and get real-time updates on the availability of bikes and empty slots on the stations.
