Observed today: When all the stations in an area are full (often the case in the port/beach district), leave your bike next to a station in the hope that someone will ride off on it and dock it somewhere, soon. This almost guarantees a small fine, and carries a considerable risk of a large one if the next rider simply takes the thing home. Result: more revenues for Bicing.

Two potentials:

  • Acquire a Bicing card, wait next to a full station, and charge would-be dockers a small fee to remove a bike and make space for them.
  • Don't bother to get a Bicing card, but simply kidnap bikes at the far end of the station from the screen as they are liberated by cardholders.

How two of these could be fixed.
