A latest initiative in Brussels against traffic congestion. You can rent a bike to go to your job instead of taking the car. You can leave the bike behind at a booth and take another bike to return home. Huge success for the moment because of the cheap rates. VILLO is the contraction of the French words VELO (bike) and VILLE (city). I think they modeled themselves on a Berlin experiment. In the sixties I knew the white bikes in Amsterdam. They were free but that didn't work because most bikes were stolen.
