Bike-sharing systems (BSS) are a means of smart transportation with the benefit of a positive impact on urban mobility. To improve the satisfaction of a user of a BSS, it is useful to inform her/him on the status of the stations at run time, and indeed most of the current systems provide the information in terms of number of bicycles parked in each docking stations by means of services available via web. However, when the departure station is empty, the user could also be happy to know how the situation will evolve and, in particular, if a bike is going to arrive (and vice versa when the arrival station is full).

Abstract

Bike-sharing systems (BSS) are a means of smart transportation with the benefit of a positive impact on urban mobility. To improve the satisfaction of a user of a BSS, it is useful to inform her/him on the status of the stations at run time, and indeed most of the current systems provide the information in terms of number of bicycles parked in each docking stations by means of services available via web. However, when the departure station is empty, the user could also be happy to know how the situation will evolve and, in particular, if a bike is going to arrive (and vice versa when the arrival station is full).
