Streetfilms: Full-Service Bike Parking in Brazil
On a recent trip to Brazil, Streetfilms’ Elizabeth Press visited ASCOBIKE, a bicycle parking garage outside São Paulo. ASCOBIKE serves 1,700 riders daily, many of whom hop a train to complete their commute from Mauá, "a city with zero bike infrastructure." Membership perks include safety and maintenance tips, bike repair service and even legal advice, all financed by a nominal $5-per-month fee.
Says Elizabeth: "ASCOBIKE isn’t your average bicycle parking station."
