The Board of City Transportation (ZTM) in Poznan (west Poland) is piloting a potential of automatic bike hire points. The pilot will target students and staff members at the University of Poznañ (UAM). The first 2 test hire stations will be opened in 2011 in Morasko, a suburban district of Poznañ. Depending on the results of the pilot, the network could be extended throughout the city in the future. Tourists and inhabitants of Poznañ, who currently use trams and buses, will be encouraged to change to bikes.

Hire cycles will be transported by car between the different hire stations according to user requirements to ensure availability of cycles. Hire of cycles will be free of charge for the first 30 minutes.
