Docking stations are anywhere existing bike stands exist and the entire hire process and billing system is via the mobile phone. Advertising is carried on a corex board attached to each bike (see picture). The bikes are used daily, so exposure of branding is constant. The mobile phone operating system also allows sponsor name to appear on each transaction.
