While a friend with his own bicycle waits, a young man uses the rental terminal at an automated station for hiring a 'velib' (short for 'velo libre' or free bicycle)   near the Gare de Lyon. As part of a revolutionary public bicycle programme, 20,000 bicycles are available to the public at a series of over 1,450 automated stations around the city.
