Smovengo, le consortium désormais chargé d'exploiter le système de vélos en libre-service Vélib' à Paris, a annoncé dimanche que la totalité du service serait opérationnel "cet été", un nouveau retard qu'il impute à son prédécesseur JCDecaux mais aussi aux "graves insuffisances" de son client (Syndicat Autolib Vélib' Métropole). /Photo prise le 8 janvier 2018/REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes

Smovengo, the consortium now in charge of operating Vélib, said on Sunday that the entire service would be operational “this summer”. Smovengo has been receiving criticism for the delays in deployment and said that 376 stations were in service as of March 10th.

The initial target was to install 1,400 stations (or 20,000 Vélib ‘) by March 31st. Moving forward, the following scheduled has been set: More than 500 stations will be installed at the end of March, close to a thousand at the end of May/ beginning of June, and the entire service will be deployed this summer,” says Smovengo.
