Bike sharing in famiglia

Topic Education & trainingDesignSmart bikingShared modes of mobility

What if a family with children wanted to use bike sharing as a mode of transport to get around the city?
Very few services offer bikes with child seats or bikes suitable for small children. For example, the bike sharing service in Milan (BikeMi) has experimented with both solutions, but for limited periods and only in some areas.

It would be interesting to understand if this is a solution that could attract more families to a more sustainable mode of transport, if there could be design solutions that could also facilitate the operator and possibly initiatives that would make this service mandatory, especially in large cities.

Surely it is a solution that could educate children and young people towards a more sustainable and conscious mobility.

I really like the idea. It could be a combination of a child seat and a bike basket (for example for food, bags, etc.)?. So that the bike is usable and helpful in different situation.
