The system is no longer dependent on facilities at specific locations, but may be applied anywhere in a town. Although the judges’ report does not provide particulars, it appears to operate on the basis of a built-in GPS and GSM system, which allows tracking of all bicycle movements.

If a definite decision is made in favour of the concept, it will need further elaboration, however.
